What it's about
The Forum's Wellbeing Passport project won funding from the Edinburgh and Lothians Health Foundation which helped ELCCF produce and set up documents online and run the initiative for a year.
The Passport is the brainchild of Forum supporter Ross Macphail, who said: “It helps you to remember all the things you might forget when in consultation; the kind of things which only spring to mind much later.
“My idea was to come up with something which avoids having to tell health professionals the same details over and over again. It identifies the person as an individual and where they’re going just like a real passport, but in terms of their life journey.
“This really has potential to be rolled out nationally but we’re starting with the Lothian Health area.”
The Forum is now looking for volunteers to act as interviewers for prospective Passport holders. Health and social care groups and organisations can also get involved. If you would find out more, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01620 822212.
