Why do you need leaflets for your patients?

Displaying NHS leaflets for patients is essential in any GP surgery, hospital or clinic. Having a patient information leaflet NHS approved that's easy for the patients to take away with them ensures they can digest the information they receive and come to terms with their situation. In some cases, it may even save a person's life if they realise they have the symptoms they see on a leaflet.

Some other ways that an information leaflet can help patients include:

  • Improves education - having confirmed and accurate medical advice can help patients to stay on top of their conditions or injuries. Rather than searching for information online, the patient has a reliable source to turn to if they want answers about their condition.
  • Gives patients responsibility for their own care - having easy access to all the correct information can be conducive to allowing patients to take a more active role in their own care. When someone understands their illness or injury, they are much more likely to be cooperative about their treatment.
  • Helps patients to share their news with family - having this information to hand can also make it much easier for family members or friends to learn about the condition without the patient having to answer difficult questions.
