Your Personal Health Passport

Care & Respond Health Passports
A simple and secure way of sharing important information

About your health

How a condition may develop in an emergency

Any needs you have regarding accessing healthcare

Not everyone needs a digital health passport and you will most likely benefit from it if any of the following apply to you:

You have a severe allergy

You have one or more chronic conditions

You have difficulty communicating your needs to others

You have a rare or complex health condition

“We have combined co-production with patients and a rigorous scientific process with a review of the existing literature, and focus groups with patients and healthcare professionals from a broad range of backgrounds. This and the superb engineering and user interface design from the team of Scienap makes this app so special.”

Dr. Chris Subbe, Consultant in Acute, Respiratory & Intensive Care Medicine,

We are working with the NHS to ensure that emergency services can very quickly access the contents of your Emergency Passport and connect with your local support team in the event of an emergency.

Why would you want to share your Health Passport?

You may need to see a paramedic or an Emergency Department doctor, at home or when on holiday or travelling abroad. 

If you have a rare or complex condition and you frequently see many different doctors then you can share your Full Passport with them in advance of a planned appointment.  This could save you repeating yourself and you can provide links to reference material providing detailed information about your rare condition.

You should also consider sharing it with friends and family so they know what is important to you in an emergency, because they may be the first people to help you.

“The emergency patient passport allows me to carry important information about my health condition in my pocket rather than carry around a large physical file. It was important to me that this app works for patients who receive cross-border care and provides the ability to upload medical documents. A patient owned app provides the patient with a greater level of autonomy.”

It is entirely up to you who you share your Passport with, and you can remove access at any time.

We use a highly secure data centre (ISO 27001 Certified) and we comply with NHS data protection requirements. Your passport data is secure with us.
