  • My Brain Book - a patient folder where you can record information about yourself, your healthcare team, appointments and outcomes and any questions you have. You can also keep a disk of your brain scans in the book and there is a pocket at the back of the book to store letters or receipts for travel expenses claims
  • The Little White Book - a comprehensive, easy to navigate collection of UK brain tumour resources
  • 'Have you lost your way?' - a booklet helping you to work our who to turn to, and for what
