Where can I get copies of patient information leaflets?
Information leaflets are provided by ward and clinic staff. If you need help understanding the leaflet or would like the information provided in another format, please ask when you are given the relevant leaflet.
There is a wide range of information provided on the NHS Choices website.
The Trust’s Patient Information Service is able to provide patients with Braille translation free of charge. For information about this service, please ask at the relevant ward or hospital department you are attending for your treatment.
Translation and interpretation
The Trust can arrange for patient information leaflets to be translated into a range of other languages for patients for whom English is not their first language. For information about this service, please ask the relevant ward or hospital department where you are attending for your treatment. If you require the services of an interpreter, the Trust has in-house interpreters whose services we can call upon.
