Edinburgh to host patient information day

As part of Haemochromatosis UK’s ongoing core work to offer support to patients with haemochromatosis and keep them up to date with the latest information, we are running another patient information day (PID). PID’s are a smaller scale version of our main conference with medical speakers, updates on the work of the charity and question and answer sessions.


This is our first event in Scotland since 2016.

We begin our day as always with a thorough description of haemochromatosis and the mechanisms involved. This is given by Dr Steven Masson, Consultant Hepatologist at Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Dr Masson will present and then take audience questions.

Our second speaker will be Mr Graham M Lawson, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon MB ChB, FRCS (Ed), FRCSEd (Orth) Who will speak on the subject of  haemochromatosis and joint pain.

The day will also contain a talk about haemochromatosis and diet from Dr Fred Pender, Dietitian BSc, PgD, PhD, RD.  Dr Pender is the Lead Specialist Dietitian with the bariatric service at the Spire Edinburgh Hospitals and is Fellow in Medical Education (PBL) at The University of Edinburgh.

Tickets are £10 for members/their guest and £15 for non-members to cover the cost of lunch. You can reserve your place using the link below:
