Giving information people can trust
Over the last year we gave information and support to more people affected by blood cancer than ever before.
We sent out 49,500 printed publications to help people understand their diagnosis, an increase from 44,500 in 2018/19. Our booklets were distributed in 207 hospitals across the UK, up from 177 the previous year.
There were 1 million page views of our health information online, compared to 890,000 the previous year, and our new website, which went live on 1 April 2020, helped make our online information easier to navigate.
We also developed new information, including a website for young people with blood cancer, and a new website section with practical advice on mental health and wellbeing. We produced online information for people who have been newly diagnosed; information on CAR-T, an exciting new treatment; a symptoms guide; and a fact sheet on donating stem cells.
