Learning Disability Hospital Passport and Guidance

The Grab and Go form gives doctor and nurses important information about a patient who has a learning disability or autism if they have to be admitted to hospital because of COVID-19. Find out more.
Inside a hospital room

The Grab and Go form and guide have been designed in partnership with people with learning disabilities, families and nurses.

It gives the information that doctors and nurses will need if you go to hospital because of COVID-19 and, for example, are struggling to breathe.

It is not a replacement for the everyday, detailed hospital passport. You should update your hospital passport and take that to hospital along with the Grab and Go guide if you need to be admitted.


You can download the form and the guidance here.
