Content Updates

The Patient website editorial team creates accurate and up-to-date content reflecting reliable research evidence and latest recognised guidance.

Each month we aim to release around 80-100 new or revised documents, which makes us proud to say we have one of the most trusted and current information resources in the UK.

Our health information leaflets and medicine leaflets are also accredited by The Information Standard, a quality mark supported by the NHS England.
