These publications are available for free download from our website. However, we encourage you to ensure you keep one or more of these handy self-contained hospital folders on hand, should you be admitted to hospital.

If these are ever out of stock, please print our leaflets and guidance and put them in a folder, envelope or staple them together. 

If you are worried about an hospital admission, read our advice article for more information about being prepared. Remember you can also speak to others on our online forum if you would like to hear from people with Addison's or adrenal insufficiency first hand.
