Leaving care health summary

We aim to provide all young people aged 16-18 years old in care with a summary of their health since birth.

The health summary is a small booklet which contains your birth details, immunisation and health history (if available). The summary is unique to you and you can update it at any time.

The information about you in the health summary is confidential and is only shared with you. Please keep this booklet in a safe place as you may require the information in the future. The health summary also contains useful information about how you can access health services and useful tips about staying healthy.

Please call the nursing team on 0300 131 4520 or email esh-tr.LACnurseteam@nhs.net if you want to discuss any health concerns at any time.
