Easy Read Guides
Health Education England has worked with people with lived experience to produce two easy read health guides. Designed to help people navigate healthcare information, the guides could help people get the treatment they want and the answers they need to understand information they are given. This could include information about medication, appointments, or treatment, and how it is provided, for example by letter or email.
‘Get ready to talk about your health’ prepares people for what to do before they go for a healthcare consultation. ‘3 questions for better health’ suggests important questions to ask during an appointment.
