The Grab and Go guide

The Grab and Go guide has 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.
If you haven’t got a hospital passport you can download your local passport by searching on the internet for (hospital name) hospital passport or choose one you like from here:
