The Pernicious Anaemia Society

What We Do

We provide information, help and support to sufferers of Pernicious Anaemia (PA), including their families and friends and strive to improve current and future diagnosis and treatment of Pernicious Anaemia by: providing information to health professionals, engaging in research with the health research community, lobbying decision makers and working hard to change the way in which PA is diagnosed and treated.

Information Leaflets

We provide Information Leaflets that explain in plain English what Pernicious Anaemia is and outlines some of the likely problems and consequences that the newly diagnosed patient can expect to encounter

Support Groups

We organise local support groups that help alleviate the isolation often experienced by patients with Pernicious Anaemia

Treatment Information

We provide details of alternative treatments that are available – though we always advise that these alternative treatments should be discussed with the patient’s doctor beforehand


We host conferences and seminars for health care professionals and patients


We make documentaries about Pernicious Anaemia to raise awareness


We provide a dedicated Members’ Helpline for information and support whenever you need it.

Healthcare Network

We work with medical professionals to raise awareness of the problems with late or wrong diagnosis and are currently campaigning for our members to be offered a choice of treatment methods based on the individual patient’s needs.


We recruit members to participate in medical and scientific research. We gather and analyse data and make this data available to medical professionals that will form the basis for research into the diagnosis and treatment of Pernicious Anaemia


We lobby politicians to encourage them to call for a complete review of how Pernicious Anaemia in particular and B12 deficiency in general is diagnosed and treated
