Guides and Information Leaflets

We understand that getting appropriate information in relation to your condition and operation is vital. You will see a number of links below to helpful balanced information covering many areas. If you do not find the appropriate leaflet, please let us know and we will endeavour to get the appropriate information for you. There are of course many sources of good information and if you do find alternative leaflets which you have found helpful yourself do let us know and we can add the link to the website for other patients.

If you have concerns about your recovery we would much rather you contact us directly when I will be able to either address your concern in moments or arrange to see you promptly if we feel that would be best.
