Phil Coathup one of HUK's amazing  ‘Expert Patient's' did a Presentation yesterday to a group of doctors at the Bewdley Medical Practice - part of the Wyre Forrest Health Partnership. 

It was a great session where GP's and practice nurses listened to Phil describing the many symptoms of GH and how this affects a person on a day to day basis. This will prove very important to understanding the condition when dealing with patients diagnosed within their practice.

A discussion was had on how there is a RCGP training module on Haemochromatosis available to clinicians. Click here for more details. 

Also talks on the topic of genetic counselling and the costs of gene tests.

It was a great session where both clinicians and patients benefited by good discussions about Haemochromatosis.


Here’s a picture of the happy smiling doctors - after the presentation!
