Information for healthcare professionals

The LJMC publishes a wide range of leaflets on many aspects of cancer and its treatments. Some of these are available on this site for healthcare professionals to download for their patients.

If there is a LJMC publication that you wish to be able to download for your patients, please get in touch with the LJMC Information team.

These leaflets are designed to be given to patients by healthcare staff who will explain their content. If you are a patient or carer, we advise you not to download them without first checking which are relevant to you and the treatment(s) that are planned for you.

Most of the leaflets in the PI series are A5 booklets. Please select the most appropriate format for your printer:

  • single-sided
  • booklet format - suitable for printers with a booklet/duplex unit

Leaflets will open in PDF format.
