The BLF produces publications on a broad range of topics, including how your lungs work, how they can be affected by different lung diseases, and living with a lung condition.

Information published in our printed publications is also published on our website - see You and your lungs.

How to order

Publications can be ordered via our online shop - you can either visit and browse through the publications section or look through the list of publications at the bottom of this page.

Most of our publications are provided free of charge. We do have significant print and distribution costs, however, so it would help us greatly if you could make a donation when get to the 'shopping cart' section on the website. Orders are dispatched within two working days, but please allow ten days overall for delivery.

Our publications are written and reviewed by healthcare and other professionals and by people affected by lung disease. They are medically

reviewed at least once every two years. Unfortunately, please note we are unable to send publications to addresses outside the UK.
