Some helpful guides and information leaflets

information and downloads

You will see a number of links below to helpful information about a number of clinical conditions in addition to which I have added links to information leaflets which will guide your recovery. 

If you do not find the information you need please do let me know and I will do my very best to answer your query. There are of course many sources of good information and if you do find alternative leaflets which you have found helpful yourself do let me know and I can add the link to the website for other patients. 

If you have concerns about your recovery I would much rather you contact me 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".
