Information Standard

Breast Cancer UK works hard to ensure that all of the public facing information we produce is of high quality, is evidence based, is accurate, balanced, trustworthy, and relevant and addresses users’ needs.

Breast Cancer UK is a certified member of the NHS Information Standard. This recognises that the health and social care information we produce is supported by the best evidence, and is produced according to strict quality-control guidelines.

Breast Cancer UK will only produce publications and information that are relevant and in line with our charitable objectives

Our publications aim to: educate consumers, members of the public and policy makers about the causes of breast cancer and particularly focus on the preventable causes of breast cancer. 

In particular, we focus on the lifestyle and environmental risk factors that could be contributing to an increased risk of breast cancer and give advice as to how people can reduce their risk of breast cancer by adopting different lifestyle choices. 

Our publications are put together using good quality, reliable evidence sources, they are peer reviewed and user tested.  They allow for bias and uncertainty and will always point the reader to references or where they can obtain further information.
