Your health passport

A health passport is a booklet you can carry with you when going to hospital or seeing other health and disability service providers. It contains information about how you want people to communicate with you and support you when you are unwell.

You can find out more information about health passports, and download your own health passport and a guide to using it, on the Health & Disability Commissioner's website.
