Why Jenny wants to be a NASS champion:
I have heard many patient stories of years of frustration to receiving a diagnosis and the impact on their life, and also more positive stories of early recognition, referral and diagnosis. From working as a FCP I also further understand the challenges in primary care, so this programme provided an ideal opportunity to try an influence recognition and the patient pathway.
What Jenny hopes to achieve from the programme:
“Through this programme I hope I can increase awareness of this condition in primary care and enable easier recognition and appropriate referral to secondary care services, ultimately contributing to a reduction in delay to diagnosis.”
