Hospital Traffic Light Assessments

The Hospital Traffic Light Assessment (TLA) was devised by Gloucestershire NHS Trust and has been adapted and used by many acute trusts in England. “Audit outcomes in many Acute Trusts has indicated that the document is appealing to hospital staff, people who have learning disabilities and their carers because it is attractive, easy to fill out by the patient/carer, and easy and quick to read by the hospital staff.”

This document should be brought to hospital on ALL occasions, and remains the property of the patient, so should go home with them after.
