Hard copies can be sent out free of charge, however, a contribution towards production costs and postage will enable the Brittle Bone Society to continue its vital work.

All our factsheets are endorsed by healthcare professionals from the NHS Centres of Excellence, including the Paediatric Osteogenesis Imperfecta National Team (POINT), and by our Medical Advisory Board.  Our resources are designed to give anybody affected by OI, and professionals working with someone who has OI, a source of reliable information.
