Hospital leaflets are real winners

BARNSLEY Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has become the first in the region to be rewarded for the quality of its patient information leaflets.

A total of 10 leaflets from the hospital has been awarded the Information Standard – national accreditation to reassure people the health and social care information they access is from a reliable source.

Communications spokeswoman Helen Stevens said: “Our next challenge will be to apply the rigorous process to all the hospital’s leaflets.”
