About the PAS
We are an International Charity (charity reg. no. 1147839) that is based in Bridgend, South Wales. The society was founded in 2005 by the former Executive Chair, Martyn Hooper. The original aim of the society was simply to provide an easy to understand explanation of Pernicious Anaemia to newly diagnosed patients – at the time there was no such information available. It quickly became obvious that there were serious issues with the way in which B12 Deficiency in general, and Pernicious Anaemia in particular, is diagnosed and treated. The society was entered onto the U.K’s Charity Commission in July 2006.
To secure a full and comprehensive review of the way in which Pernicious Anaemia is diagnosed and treated that will lead to more timely diagnoses and better treatment
A world that understands the nature and consequences of Pernicious Anaemia and where there is easily accessible information, advice and support for sufferers of Pernicious Anaemia and their families and friends.
