If your child needs to go to hospital either as an inpatient or outpatient, we recommend you complete a hospital passport (PDF). This will provide staff with important information about your child and can help make appointments and hospital stays run smoothly.

Most hospitals have an Acute Liaison Nurse, who can work with staff to help them understand the needs of your child. They can also advise what reasonable adjustments (PDF) are needed to make your child's hospital stay as comfortable as possible.
