It is a basic need for people to understand more about their health and wellbeing. Yet almost half of all adults have limited health literacy and struggle to understand everyday health information.      

Providing reliable easy-to-understand health information can help people to: 

  • make the best decisions about their health 
  • be more confident to take an active part in planning their own care.

Arming people with greater knowledge and understanding about their health can have a huge impact on how they: 

  • respond to treatment
  • recover from illness 
  • manage a long-term condition.
