Patient information

We know that having good information about cancer and its treatments is important for patients, helping them to understand what is happening and make informed decisions about their care.

Our Information team is responsible for ensuring that appropriate information resources are available. We hold stocks of leaflets by a wide range of organisations as well as writing our own publications.

The LJMC is a member of the Information Standard, a national scheme developed by the Department of Health to help the public identify trustworthy health and social care information easily.

All our publications have been written in conjunction with doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, as well as patients and carers following our 12-Point Plan.

The quality of our information publications has been recognised nationally with the team winning a number of awards for its work.


Information publications are available from the Drop-in centre and also the iPoint, the satellite information desk in the Cancer Centre.

Look in the Links section of this website for details of other organisations that may be helpful for you.


LJMC libraryOur Amazon Wish List

The LJMC library is in the Drop-in centre and includes books on many topics that may help you when you are affected by cancer.

This is primarily a reference service although we do have a few books that we are able to lend to people for a short period.

We welcome contributions to the library and have set up a Wish List with Amazon. This includes books that have been recommended by LJMC staff as well as publications recommended by Macmillan Cancer Support.

If you wish to donate a book from this list, please visit the Amazon Wish List site and search for the LJMC Wish List.

If you have any problems, please contact the Information team via the LJMC Helpline (020 3826 2555).


If you have any questions about cancer and its treatments, please contact the LJMC Telephone Helpline (020 3826 2555) or drop in to the LJMC during opening hours.
