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.

Available for public use via University College London Hospitals NHS Trust, the videos cover everything that happens before the procedure, during, and afterwards in recovery. They run for 4–6 minutes and are available in 10 different languages.
