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 the
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

If you decide to return the Hospital Passport to us
electronically you will first need to save a blank copy of the
document to your computer. Then you will need to complete the
document and send an e-mail to email@example.com and
add the Hospital Passport as an attachment. You will
then receive an automated response informing you that we have
received your e-mail. Please be aware that you will
be emailing confidential information about your child and the email
you send is only as secure as the service provider you use.
If you do not receive confirmation from us then please
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.
