HCI have developed a Health Information Library with over 900 videos. It’s aim is to help people to manage their health and wellbeing, alongside the care provided by healthcare professionals.
The information provided is as accurate and as comprehensive as possible but it is only general advice and should not be used as a substitute for the individual advice you might receive from consulting your own doctor.
The videos have been written by medical scriptwriters, and reviewed by healthcare professionals. The videos are reviewed regularly to ensure that they provide up-to-date information but you should note the limitations on our liability, as well as our other terms for the use of our site in our full terms and conditions.
