LUPUS UK Contacts

LUPUS UK maintains a register of more than one hundred lupus Contacts located across the UK, the majority of whom have had lupus for some years. Their advisory role for fellow patients and those seeking diagnosis is seen as an extremely valuable part of the charity's support function and LUPUS UK remains continually grateful to its Contacts for the work they undertake.

If you would like to speak to a Contact, please ring National Office on 01708 731251 and we will be able to give you the telephone number of your local Contact.
