World Haemochromatosis Week 3-9 June 2019

Too often the symptoms of genetic haemochromatosis can be ignored, either as a sign of growing older, or attributed to other conditions and life events, however they should not be ignored.

This year for World Haemochromatosis Week (WHW), the campaign will be to #TellTen people about genetic haemochromatosis (GH).
