Patient Information Leaflets

Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust produces a wide range of patient information leaflets which give details on treatments and procedures carried out at this trust.  Also included is patient information provided by other appropriate organisations, for example Royal College of Anaesthetics, British Hearth Foundation etc.

The provision of good quality information is central to the patients’ ability to make valued decisions and informed choices about medical treatment and care and can:

  • Help to ensure that patients arrive on time and are properly prepared
  • Give patients confidence, improving their overall experience
  • Remind patients of what they have already been told
  • Involve patients and carers in their treatment and condition

Our patient information leaflets are reviewed regularly and can also be made available in different languages and easy read formats on request.

For any queries on any of our information or if you would like further help please email
