The Cancer Vanguard has produced a series of videos to help patients, their families and carers learn more about some of the most common tests and procedures used to diagnose and treat blood diseases.
Patients who have previously undergone these tests helped to design the videos.

Each video is available in English, and also with subtitles in Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Farsi, Polish, Portuguese, Somali, Spanish and Turkish.
There is also a flyer available to explain about the videos to patients, families and carers.
