Our Members Survey Results Published

4 Jun, 2014

The results of our Survey of Members’ Experiences in getting diagnosed and treated has now been published by the British Journal of Nursing. The results show that 21% of members waited over two years for a correct diagnosis, 19% waited over five years and 14% waited over ten years to be told why they felt so awful.
This is a big step in the right direction for the Society and it’s members and we now hope this is discussed by a wider audience.
