WDSG-UK was founded in the year 2000 by Caroline Simms (PhD), and Linda Hart, to provide a support network for Wilson’s disease patients, their families and friends. Membership is open to all and covers the cost of our annual newsletter.
The Wilson’s Disease Support Group - UK (WDSG-UK) is an all volunteer organisation which strives to promote the wellbeing of patients with Wilson’s disease, their families and friends.
The organisation aims to provide informative articles about the nature of the disease, articles written by patients, families and friends, about their experiences of the disease, recent progress in treatment and much more by way of an annual newsletter. The organisation also aims to promote networking of Wilson’s disease patients and their families by helping and encouraging them to correspond with one another.
The organisation also strives to promote a wider awareness of Wilson’s disease within the medical profession.
