Patient Information Leaflets

EIDO leaflets

The trust subscribes to EIDO Healthcare which produces a wide range of Patient Information Leaflets.

EIDO leaflets provide patients with information on health conditions and related treatments and operations.

The leaflets have been prepared by healthcare specialists and are fully endorsed by the trust.

They can help you to more fully understand your condition and the treatment options available to you.

Online library and patient forum

About My Health logo

EIDO Healthcare has created an online leaflet library and patient forum which can be accessed at AboutMyHealth.org.

You can share your experience and learn from the experiences of others, through discussion forums dedicated to hospital patients.

If you have been given an EIDO leaflet by your healthcare professional, you can use the title or leaflet code to access further information and references from this website.

Leaflets produced by the Trust

The trust also produces a wide range of leaflets which are given to patients to support their care and treatment.

We are currently looking at improving the way we develop and review our leaflets to ensure they meet our patients' needs and are kept up-to-date.

Help us to improve our Patient Information Leaflets

We are looking at how we can improve the way we develop and review our leaflets to ensure they meet our patients' needs and are kept up-to-date. To help us to do this, we would like to set up a Lay Readership Group. By 'lay', we mean the group may include members of the public and non-medical staff.

The aim of the group is to ensure all new leaflets produced by the Trust:

  • Use easy to understand language
  • Meets their stated aims and
  • Include the information our patients tell us is most important to them.

If you have an interest in this area and would like to be considered for the group, please email the Trust's Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) with your name and contact details on: pals.team@gwh.nhs.uk or call 01793 604031.
