During the current coronavirus crisis, the demand for our services is greater than ever. However, the reality is that this pandemic is having a financial impact on us as a charity. We need your support now more than ever to help us to continue our vital work.
Patients living with Inherited Metabolic Disorders need to take extra precautions to ensure that they stay well during this time. Many are considered extremely vulnerable and advised to take more extreme measures to be fully shielded. We have seen a vast increase in enquiries from our patients and families. Our small team has quickly adapted to this need and is working tirelessly to:
- Keep our patients fully informed of all updated guidance and advice relevant to them, working with our network of metabolic specialists to address common issues. Supporting patients individually, and bringing them together as a community to reduce isolation.
- Advocate for patients to ensure they have access to the appropriate care, services and medications that they need.
- Advocate for equality in the healthcare system in relation to treatment for coronavirus.
- Relieving the pressure on the NHS by answering queries and providing advice and information, reducing the need for patients to contact their metabolic teams.
