Our lymphoma information

We are committed to the provision of high quality information for people with lymphoma, their families and friends.

We produce our information using nationally recognised guidelines, including the DISCERN tool for information about treatments, the NHS Toolkit for producing patient information, and the Plain English Campaign guidelines. We're a certified member of The Information Standard independent quality assurance scheme, which is supported by the Department of Health.

Our publications are written by experienced medical writers, in close collaboration with medical advisers with expertise in the appropriate field. References are provided where academic texts have been used.

In some instances, our publications are funded by grants from pharmaceutical companies. These sponsors do not have any involvement in the content of a publication and have no editorial input.
