Free Booklet Scheme

Welcome to NAM's 'free booklet scheme' online ordering

Important information regarding the free booklet scheme:

Due to changes to the NHS commissioning structure and non-availability of funding for patient information materials, from 1 April 2014 (the start of the 2014/2015 financial year), NAM is introducing subscription charges for our treatment information and patient education materials.

We have based our subscription prices on the number of patients within each NHS trust or clinic and we have written to trusts to advise them which band they fall under.

In addition to a regular supply of the full range of NAM’s printed patient information materials, our subscription package also includes:

  • Access to an online portal for clinics and patients, which includes decision tools, translated materials and the option to download our resources.
  • Regular reporting on the number of materials ordered including the number of patients that access your portal, to help you evidence your centre’s delivery against the patient education and patient self-management targets in your own NHS standard contract.
  • We will work with your staff and patient groups to develop or adapt resources, allowing you to deliver the resources most appropriate for your clinic.
  • Resources and materials that are certified by the Information Standard (IS) - the kite mark for trustworthy information (the only in-clinic resources available with IS certification), as well as resources which carry the Crystal Mark, issued by the Plain English Campaign

If your clinic has not yet joined our subscription scheme, you can still request booklets from us, however the last date to order resources from us is 15 March and there is a maximum order quantity of five copies per each title.
