Navigating the internet for information regarding diseases and treatments can be daunting, with a lot of poor quality or misleading information being available. Especially when you have a new diagnosis, full and frank discussion with your doctor is the best first step to informing yourself about your condition. We have numerous useful patient information sheets which have been put together using published evidence and best practice, which you may find helpful.
