Darlington PCT's Andrea Jones, who put Your Trust together, said: "We decided this year we wanted to move away from the NHS corporate image after listening to people in Darlington who want information in plain and simple English not jargon.
"So rather than produce a typical glossy report, we have opted for a user friendly, easy to read magazine."
Copies are being sent to every house in the Darlington, doctors' surgeries, pharmacies and dental practices.
Anyone wanting additional copies should contact Andrea
