East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust produces a wide range of patient information leaflets which give details on treatments and procedures which are carried out at this trust.
Whilst the information contained in the leaflets has been created, reviewed and ratified by our medical, surgical and nursing teams, they are intended to complement the advice of professional healthcare staff. They should not be used without appropriate medical advice. Procedures should only be undertaken by trained healthcare professionals and the trust will not be liable for injury, loss or financial impairment as a result of actions taken by individuals after reading the materials.
Care has been taken to describe the treatments in a sensitive manner, however, due to their nature you may find some of the content distressing. If you have any questions, please contact your GP or consultant. The NHS website provides a wealth of information – www.nhs.uk
