Summary of report content

Healthwatch Bristol was pleased to work with Bristol Children’s Hospital to inform patients and visitors about the SEN and disability services. Healthwatch Bristol spoke to patients and families at the Children’s Hospital to find out if they had special needs or disabilities. If yes, we informed them of UH Bristol's Children's Hospital Passport, a document to help children with life-long disabilities when going to hospital. The aim of the Hospital Passport is to provide the staff with information about a child during a hospital visit. The information collated is anonymous. All the findings received from the emotional health and wellbeing survey from today will be added to the year’s research focusing on mental health and will help feed into a final report by Healthwatch Bristol. The report produced will highlight the findings captured in our survey. This will help inform Healthwatch Bristol which community groups, organisations, peer support advice, social and health services are acccessed to help aid them with their mental health. The feedback received will inform Healthwatch Bristol on how individual services, health and social care provisions support its service users and which areas and provisions could be improved upon. Healthwatch Bristol recommended more should be done to let children and young people know about the support offered through the passport system, as well as the support groups available to them at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children. Additional information about other services in Bristol which can help parents and carers with their children’s special educational needs should also be made available.
