Dorset County Hospital have a ‘My Care Passport‘ system in operation for patients with Autism or a Learning Disability or their carers to show to staff upon any admission.
Being admitted or attending a hospital appointment can be frightening, confusing and stressful. For people with a learning disability or autism these feelings can be magnified.
Going into hospital is also now very different because of the Coronavirus. Face coverings to be worn if you can and follow the guidance around social distancing and hand washing. You do not have to wear a face covering if you can’t put on, wear or remove one because of a physical or mental illness, or impairment or disability, or if putting on, wearing or removing a face covering will cause you severe distress.
Hospitals can be noisy and have very bright lights. If this is something that causes you distress or anxiety,
- it may be worth bringing in some music that you can listen to with headphones, or even some ear defenders or ear plugs.
- Sun visors, baseball caps or sunglasses can also help with the bright lights.
Download your ‘My Care Passport’ to view & print off HERE.
If you would like to talk to someone about your admission or appointment before you come in please contact:

- Sarah Cake, Adult Safeguarding Lead, 01305 253274.

Born on this day in her namesake town in Italy 1820, Florence Nightingale changed the way nurses were perceived during her time, raising the standards for nursing, and educating nurses.
A woman of great achievements beyond the Crimean war, she was a scientist, a data-gatherer, a writer, a trainer, a manager, an organizer, an analyst, and a campaigner.
From 1857 onwards, Florence was often confined to bed by spondylitis pain or depression caused by brucellosis. In 1859, Florence completed her book Notes on Nursing, the founding work of modern nursing. In 1860 she was elected the first woman Fellow of the Statistical Society and had laid the foundation of modern, professional nursing with the establishment of her nursing school at St Thomas’ Hospital in London (now part of King’s College London).
In 1883, Florence received the Royal Red Cross from Queen Victoria and in 1907, she became the first woman to be awarded the Order of Merit.
Refusing several marriage proposals, Florence never married nor had any children. Florence died of heart failure in her bed at her London home on August 13th 1910 at 90 years old. Her wishes to leave her body to science were ignored and she was laid to rest at St Margaret’s Church at East Wellow, Hampshire.
International Nurses’ Day has been recognised in the UK since 1965. (President Dwight D. Eisenhower refused to approve a “Nurses’ Day” in 1953). It was in January 1974, when 12 May was chosen to celebrate the day as it is the anniversary of Florence’s birthday. (In 1998, 8 May was designated as annual National Student Nurses’ Day.)
Each year a service is held in Westminster Abbey in London. During the Service, a symbolic lamp is taken from the Nurses’ Chapel in the Abbey and handed from one nurse to another, thence to the Dean, who places it on the High Altar. This represents the passing of knowledge from one nurse to another. A service is also held for her the first Sunday following her birthday at her burial ground.
Today’s Sound of Music Through the Square Window will be dedicated to Florence Nightingale and all the nurses and care workers operating now during these restrictive times. #StayAtHome #StaySafe

To be clear, you should only leave your home under the following circumstances:
– Shopping for necessities (ideally one person and not as a family)
– One form of exercise per day on your own or as part of a household
– Medical reasons
– Travel to and from work if you must.
All gatherings of more than 2 people (unless you are part of the same household) are now banned.
The police will have the power to enforce this.
All events except funerals are now banned (e.g. Baptisms and weddings).
Please keep everyone safe and adhere to these guidelines.
Outside of your household you should avoid contact with anyone (unless your career requires it).
Do not ignore these rules to see a friend or another member of the family.
We are already on the same path as Italy, if not further along, the sooner we deal with this, the more lives can be saved.
