Wellspring is an interactive information-giving resource to improve communication and consent processes in women's health.

ABOUT

Wellspring was set up to improve the quality, accuracy and relevance of the information women receive about their medical treatment.

It provides interactive, understandable and up-to-date medical information, allowing women to consider and consent for procedures in their own time, online, using information that’s relevant to them and their needs.

The resource was set up in 2020 by a team of clinicians working at University College London Hospital (UCLH) who saw the clear need for better information-giving in Women’s Health.
