VIP Hospital Kits

The Vision Impaired Persons (VIP) Hospital Kit provides practical information and resources for people who are blind or have low vision when they are admitted to hospital and for patients in hospital who may have lost sight or become blind during the course of their admission. The kit has also been designed as a resource for hospital staff so they can provide appropriate care to patients who are blind and have low vision.

Information in the ‘VIP Hospital Kit’ is presented in large print and can be produced in Braille on request.
