We are pleased to bring Connect magazine back into production for our patients, visitors and staff.

Some of you will remember the publication in its previous A3 format which ended in 2014 (some previous editions available below). In partnership with Smile Publishing, the magazine will now be available quarterly in A5 and online.

Issue OneCONNECT Cover 1

In issue one, find out about the amazing survival of toddler Oscar Clayton, who was diagnosed with a rare cancer at 18 months which saw a tumour wrapped around his aorta and major organs, and 13-year-old Jake Malcolm, who underwent a major scalp reconstruction using an innovative balloon technique after a dog attack left him severely injured.
