Audience: healthcare professionals, children, young people, parents
The Epilepsy Passport contains essential up-to-date information about a child or young person’s epilepsy, including their emergency care plan, medication history and key professional contacts. The aim is to help children and young people with epilepsy and their families communicate with healthcare and other professionals and to help healthcare professionals communicate with each other.
This has been developed by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) with input from key epilepsy professionals, parents, children and young people and funded by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP).
The Epilepsy Passport should be carried by the child or young person with epilepsy, their parent or carer at all times. It has been designed to be folded to wallet size which makes it easy to carry in a small plastic wallet.
