Patient Information Booklets

Ipswich Hospital spinal nurse specialist Helen Vernau was asked to work with the British Association of Spinal Surgeons (BASS) to develop their information leaflets for patients undergoing spinal surgery.

Helen has built up a catalogue of expertise in caring for patients with complex spinal conditions over her 18 year career as a specialist nurse and her Ipswich Hospital patient information leaflets on all spinal surgical operations are thought of as gold standard by experts across the country, so BASS want Helen to work with them in developing more patient information.

The leaflets are written, researched and revised by Helen and designed and illustrated by our Design Services team, in association with and on behalf of the BASS Consent and Patient Information Committee.
