What is My Purple Folder?

My Purple Folder is a health passport that is offered to adults with learning disabilities living in Hertfordshire.

Good use of the Purple Folder can reduce the risk of delays in Diagnosis due to communication barriers or reluctance to accept investigations or treatment. It should be used by ALL health services in Herts when a patient attends an appointment with one. If someone with a learning disability says they do not have one, all health services should encourage them to get one.
