Accessibility

The Trust is committed to actively promote equality of opportunity for all disabled people. The Trust will work to ensure institutional systems do not discriminate, and that the day to day experience of disabled people entering the Trust as staff, patients, visitors or volunteers is positive.

The Trust also recognises that disability is extremely diverse and that no one disabled person’s experience is exactly the same as another. We seek to ensure that the full spectrum of disability issues is represented in our actions to promote disability equality and remove the social and physical barriers faced by disabled people.

Hospital Passport

The hospital passport is designed to give hospital staff helpful information about you. Download your hospital passport.

Your passport includes important information about you as well as your likes and dislikes and helps all the hospital staff know how to make you feel comfortable and safe. If you go into hospital, your hospital passport should go with you. The doctors and nurses should make a copy and put the copy in your hospital notes.

If you are going to be an inpatient, and stay in the hospital overnight, your hospital passport should be next to your bed so that anyone treating you can take a look at it.
