Patient Information leaflets

It is natural to want to know more about your condition.

Might we suggest you resist the urge to Google.

There is a lot of information out there, not all of it accurate, and much of it misleading.

We suggest the following sources of good quality information. When you have read the leaflets relevant to you, note down any questions you may have and ask one of the team.
