Medicine X Story
Working as a medical doctor, I realised that far too many patients are confused about their diagnoses, their conditions and their treatments. There’s a disconnect between the language that doctors use, and what everyday people understand. This can make people feel incredibly hopeless and anxious, often at a very difficult time in their life.
We believe there is a better way. We believe all patients, regardless of age, gender, culture or condition, should have access to medical information they can understand! Everyone should feel informed and empowered, in order to engage with their doctors and be involved in making medical decisions.
This is why Medicine X was created.
