Abstract: People with learning disabilities can have negative experiences in hospitals. One of the key reasons for this is the lack of time available for staff to understand individuals’ needs. this article describes the development and implementation of one-page patient passport, designed to provide individualised information about the person for doctors, nurses and administrative staff. The results from a pilot evaluation indicate that the tool promotes high levels of support for people with learning disabilities on admission to and during their stay in hospital.
