Patient stories

We know that coming into hospital can be a challenging and daunting time for many patients and that good quality, reliable information is invaluable in helping you prepare for a procedure or simply to understand our hospitals.

Because of that, we are gathering together first person accounts by patients for patients on these pages. This way, you can read about what to expect from someone who has been through it before you – someone who knows the anxieties and questions you might be dealing with. Choose from the personal accounts under the coming into hospital heading.

In addition, we have talked to other patients about how their treatment changed their lives. These are listed below under real patients' stories.

If you have any views on these pages or are interested in writing an account of your time in hospital, then please do contact us.
