New 'health passports' for looked after children

Tom and Gemma health passportNorfolk’s looked after children and care leavers have a new look health passport - an easy-to-reference record of their medical and healthcare history, designed to help them keep track and take control of their health into adulthood.

Health passports are a national initiative, with pages to record regular health checks that all looked after children have. There are also details of their health recorded by their doctors or nurses plus healthy living advice.

Our picture shows Tom and Gemma from the InCare Council who helped design the new health passports and launched them at an event in Norwich on 5th July 2016.
