Strike action will be taking place from 7am Saturday 24 February 2024 to Thursday 28 February 2024. Please continue to attend your appointments unless you are contacted and told otherwise.

The strike action may mean our A&E is a lot busier than usual, which means the waiting times will be longer. If you need help which is not life threatening, please use 111, Pharmacies, GPs or Urgent Treatment Centres. Thank you for your understanding during this period.

Patient leaflets

We use patient information leaflets from EIDO (a company specialising in information for informed consent), which are regularly updated and written in clear English.

When you are advised to have an operation you will be given specific, high quality patient information including diagrams, details of the risks and benefits, alternatives to the operation and post-operative expectations to help you decide whether to go ahead with surgery or not.

The following leaflets were produced by the British Association of Endocrine and Thyroid Surgeons:
