patient leaflets

Please choose from one of the categories below for more details:

Chronic conditions covers common hand pathology that patients are referred for by their GPs, and include leaflets on common operations uses to treat these conditions. Hand injuries include details on common traumatic injuries to the hand as well as information on treatment options and some basic exercises and rehabilitation details. Our rehab & therapy section contains more advanced details on specific regimes and exercises that our hand therapy department might use to help you with your hand problem.

Finally we have added a new section containing resources that may be helpful during the current Covid-19 pandemic, as you try to self-care for minor injuries or to help you avoid unneccessary trips to hospital.

Any of your downloaded patient information leaflets can be translated free of charge into several different languages. Please first download the information leaflet you are interested, and then upload it to Google Translate here.
