It can be hard to let health workers know what you need, especially if you have complex needs related to a disability or long-term condition.
A Health Passport is a booklet you can carry with you when you go to hospital or when you use other health and disability services, such as your GP or a new carer. It contains the information you want people to know about how to communicate with you and support you.
The Health and Disability Commissioner is working with hospitals around the country to introduce the Health Passport. Visit their website to order a copy of the Health Passport or download one to print.
