Patient Information Leaflets

Welcome to the East Kent Hospitals patient information directory.

The directory holds patient information leaflets produced by the Trust along with resources from other NHS bodies and health organisations. These leaflets are not meant to replace the information discussed between you and your doctor, but can act as a starting point for such a discussion or as a useful reminder of the key points. 

To search our Easy Read patient leaflets (pictures and words) you can search the 'Category' list or type words in the 'Keywords' box. For example:

  • Click on the dropdown box under 'Category', select 'Easy Read' and click search; or
  • Under 'Category' have 'All categories' selected. In the 'Keywords' box type a word of your choice (for example hearing) or 'easy read'. Click search.
