Patient Information Passports

The Patient Information Passport can be used to record details about a person who can't easily share information about themselves. For example, it can be used to record:

  • a person’s cultural and family background
  • important events, people and places from their life
  • their preferences and routines.

It helps health and social care professionals better understand who the person really is, which can help them deliver care that is tailored to the person's needs.  It can help to reduce distress for patients and their carers. It can also help to overcome problems with communication, and prevent more serious conditions developing.

You may already have a patient information passport or an 'All About Me' passport, please bring these to appointments and hospital visits to help us support you.  You do not need a WWL passport, this is available if you prefer or do not currently have a Patient information Passport in place.
