Cancer information

Stock information, new titles and editions

You can view details of all our publications, including MAC codes, edition numbers, next planned review dates and discontinued titles on the Information resources list. This list was last updated in April 2024.

PDF only booklets

We have taken the difficult decision to reduce the number of our information booklets we make available in print. Once the current stock of these titles run out they won’t be reprinted.  

These booklets will remain available as PDF resources, which will be updated when a new edition is available. The information in these booklets is also available on our website. We’re working to improve our PDFs, and are rolling out fully interactive versions with clickable hyperlinks. These are more accessible than our old PDFs. We hope you find them an improvement.

In the hope of providing sufficient notice of which titles are affected by this decision we have compiled a list of all the resources which will only be available as PDFs. We ask that you are mindful of the quantities of these resources that you order while they are still available, to help us keep these booklets in stock for as long as possible. 

We have also set up a page grouping the titles that have now been discontinued in print. More booklets will be added to this page when they become PDF-only.
