Receiving a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer can be a stressful and confusing time.  We have listened to patients,relatives and carers to understand what information is useful. These award winning booklets are easy to understand and ideal to have at hand to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

The booklets can be viewed online below and we can send them to a UK address free of charge.  Unfortunately we are not able to ship overseas.
