To mark Health Information Week, here’s a reminder of some of the information available from Versus Arthritis.
For your patients:
We offer an extensive range of plain-English guides covering:

- Drugs, surgery and other treatments – covering when the different treatment options might be used, the likely benefits and any risks that people need to be aware of.
