How will I stay healthy?

When you leave care, you will receive a health passport which will help you to understand your health information and where to access help.

You will receive a final appointment with the Looked After Children nurse when you are 17 when you will learn how to access health services and health records.

Remember that your Personal Advisors can help you find and use/get an appointment with the right health services.
