Patient leaflets

Patient information leaflets

As part of your care you should receive information about your appointment, test, operation or anything you need to do when you return home. If you have not received the relevant information, please speak to your doctor or nurse.

Some leaflets are relevant to only one hospital site—these are marked (CW) for Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and (WM) for West Middlesex University Hospital.
