Charities & Patient Organisations
Patient organisations are patient-focused, not-for-profit organisations which provide support and guidance to patients and carers. Their websites contain a wealth of information, and many also provide a helpline where you can ask questions and receive advice on specific issues. Most can also be reached through social media.
Some patient organisations also act as patient advocacy groups, advising policy-makers on health policy and care decisions. Others raise money to fund medical research.
The advice provided by these organisations should be consistent with prescribing guidelines in the UK. These are independent organisations who will be able to provide support, and are not affiliated with Neuraxpharm
