Welcome to UH Bristol's Children's Hospital Passport, a document to help children with  life-long disabilities when going to hospital.  The aim of theHospital passport Hospital Passport is to provide our staff with information about your child during a hospital visit.  This information will help us work in partnership with you in meeting your child's needs when using our hospital services.    

The Hospital Passport uses a traffic light system. This means that all essential information about your child must be written in the red section, this will alert staff to any extremely important information or specific requirements your child might have.  The amber section is for important information about your child's day-to-day activities. Preferable information about your child's like and dislikes can be documented in the green section.   

Download the Hospital Passport here.  

Please ensure that Hospital Passports are returned at least five working days before your child's planned admission date to allow us time to process them.

We will try to have the Hospital Passport to hand when your child arrives. However, there may be situations where this is not possible so please let staff know if your child has one and ask for a copy to be printed. 

We ask that you keep your child's hospital passport up-to-date. As a guide we recommend:

  • Children under five years of age - review every six months, update if necessary and email the updated copy to us.
  • Children over five years of age - annual review, update if necessary and email the updated copy to us.

If you are also a blue badge holder on behalf of your child, we have a permit system to allow you extended time in our drop-off area.  If you are completing your passport for the first time, please make it clear that you are a badge holder.  If you are an exisiting passport holder and have not received a permit, please contact LIAISE on 0117 342 8158.
