Welcome to HAN week 7th - 13th August 2017

Home Artificial Nutrition Awareness Week 2017

Here we have featured patient stories for HAN week. Each one gives a brief idea of their pathway on home artificial nutrition. While these are our featured stories; yours is just as important.


So what's your story?  Please share your personal experience to inspire and support others. Awareness can really make a difference.

There are variations in all our lives but something you may may strike a chord with someone. Sharing your story may just make a difference to someone else.  You can share it on social media, your own Facebook page, PINNT's Facebook or Twitter page. Remember to include the HAN logo and it's #HAN2017
