Introduction for Health Information Fact Sheets

To support your conversations with your doctor, midwife or nurse we have health information fact sheets in the most commonly used languages at Westmead Hospital. These fact sheets have been formally translated and reviewed to ensure they make sense in your language. As part of our commitment to the people of WSLHD we will continue to develop translated health information fact sheets to support your health care with us.

When you come to hospital we have translated health information to assist you with the hospital routines and care. On admission please ask the staff to provide you with translated health information related to your needs. If we do not have the information you need N.S.W. Health provides translated health information on a wide range of health matters. To view these resources see N.S.W. Health Multicultural Resources
