Patient Information Cards

We are offering trauma-informed information cards to patients, produced as part of the #CheckWithMeFirst campaign from The Survivors Trust. These cards can be downloaded to be printed off and displayed at reception or in patient waiting areas for survivors to take into their appointments to help inform their healthcare practitioner that they require some small adjustments to their care and a trauma-informed approach. We hope that these cards will help to empower survivors and make appointments that are potentially anxiety inducing, a little more comfortable. 

Alongside making these available on our website, we have also handed these out to NHS Champions who have completed our workshops to use in their workplace as part of a trialing period for these cards.

We ask that when offering these cards, you display them alongside our poster (Click here to download) to explain how to use them and provide a little more information for users. These can also be used to promote the cards to service users.

Non-branded Trauma Information Cards

We offer non-branded cards which do not mention sexual abuse or assault for survivors who do not wish to disclose that or do not feel comfortable doing so. We have two types of non-branded patient information cards. The smaller ones which give general information and advice to healthcare practitioners are available here, and larger ones which provide additional space for survivors to specify these adjustments in more detail are available here
