Essential Guides & Booklets

We have a range of booklets and short, easy-to-read ‘Essential Guides’ on a number of important topics if you or someone you care about is living with a chest or heart condition or has had a stroke. Several of these resources may be particularly helpful in response to coronavirus. These include Essential Guides on Breathlessness (PDF), Tiredness and Fatigue (PDF) and Mental Wellbeing (PDF).

You can order, view and download the full range of our resources from our Publications page.
