UCLH NHS patient information videos for cancer diagnosis procedures

Working alongside NHS Cancer Vanguard, UCLH and London Cancer, we created six videos to explain medical procedures to new or potential cancer patients and their carers.

We worked with Professor Ronjon Chakraverty at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to produce a series of short videos to help patients, their families and carers learn more about some of the most common tests and procedures used to diagnose and treat blood diseases.

Patients who have previously undergone these tests helped us to design the videos. Each film clearly explains what the procedure involves and addresses common issues and concerns including:

> Why your doctor recommended this procedure
> What you need to do to prepare
> What you can expect during the procedure
> What you need to do afterwards

Each film is available in English and also with subtitles in Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Farsi, Polish, Portuguese, Somali, Spanish and Turkish.
