The British Lung Foundation is a certified member of the Information Standard. This quality mark is a quick and easy way for the public to identify reliable and trustworthy sources of health and social care information.
The Information Standard ensures that the information the BLF produces about lung conditions and living with a lung disease is:
- Accurate by only using the best available scientific evidence and sources in our material
- Current by reviewing and updating it on a regular basis
- Easy to understand by using a clear, defined writing style and layout
- Relevant by involving patients in the review process and encouraging patient feedback
- Accessible by providing it in a range of formats and languages and promoting its distribution
All new and reviewed health and social care information produced by the BLF now meets these requirements. All of our current information materials will be reviewed under the Information Standard requirements within three years. Printed materials that have been produced since the BLF was certified carry the the Information Standard logo.
