Wilson's Disease Support Group - UK

Striving to promote the wellbeing of patients with Wilson's disease, their families and friends


BASL Wilson's Disease Special Interest Group

Wilson's Disease is now part of the British Association for the Study of Liver disease, Rare Diseases Special Interest Group (SIG). The SIG is linked to the Metabolic CRN topic area and the SIG Lead is Dr Bill Griffiths, Consultant Hepatologist, Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge.

Wilson's Disease was the first SIG to be established by BASL. The Wilson's Disease Group comprises a variety of clinical and laboratory specialists from around the UK, Public Health England and patient representation from the Wilson’s Disease Support Group. Its aims are to foster closer collaboration for clinical and scientific research, provide a forum to discuss and disseminate best practice, and act as a stimulus towards Centres of Excellence for Wilson's disease. The group has met four times thus far; December 2017, June 2018 and twice in 2019. Reports from meetings are made available along with presentation slides.
