Please help spread the word – Giving GPs the Tools

Posted By HMSA Social Media Coordinator, November 20, 2017

Please feel free to cut and paste this to your Facebook pages.

Can I ask my family and friends to donate to the Hypermobility Syndromes Association’s ‘Giving GPs the Tools’, rather than send me a card and presents this year?

Just Text HMSA13 to 70070 followed by 5 or 10 (£s).

For smaller amounts I will provide a VirginGiving link at the end of the month.

The HMSA has a new campaign being launched on the 30th November 2017, which is targeting GPs with education and training resources.

It will help everyone who are already diagnosed, as well as those who are yet to be so. Over 55% take 10 years or longer to get a diagnosis. I was one of these people, as was my Mum and children. If we could have had help sooner it would have given us so much more support and understanding of how to live well with the conditions we have.

The campaign will be an enormous help to people with Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder or joint hypermobility syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndromes, Marfan syndrome, Osteogenesis Imperfecta, PXE and Stickler syndrome.

More information can be read on the charity Facebook page /TheHMSA

Don’t forget the campaign goes live on the 30th November!
