Raising awareness of the condition amongst the general public and the medical profession is a key objective for the group.
This involves securing television, radio and newspaper coverage and generally publicising the existence of the group, for example, by attending professional conferences and distributing information. By promoting understanding and awareness we strive to improve care provision and day to day self management.
