We produce useful resources to help inform patients and their families about their care and encourage involvement in making decision about treatment. 

Our patient information resources are about conditions, treatments and services provided by our hospitals. These resources are written by our health professionals and are reviewed regularly to make sure all the information is up-to-date. You will also find resources from external health organisations. 

Remember that written information should only be used in conjunction with advice from the health professional who is looking after you. If you would like to comment on any of these resources, or if you would like to request a copy in a different format, contact our Patient Information team.
