UKPIN has been made aware of a European initiative looking at improving awareness of PID amongst GPs. Please see below communication for full details and contact Lotte directly if you have any queries or would like to be involved in this exciting initiative.

Developing an Immunology Specialist Supported European GP Network

I am a GP advisor at IPOPI working for more awareness about PID among GPs. I have been interested in PIDs for quite some years.

I´m trying to create a network of GPs with representatives in every country, each working within their own country, and all of us working in a network where we can help and inspire each other. For example: writing articles in national magazines, holding workshops and meetings. Eventually we can meet at conferences (e.g.: WONCA which is in Copenhagen next year or at IPIC or ESID).

Attached to the GP-network I would wish that we can have specialists in every country, hopefully one within adult care and one in paediatric care to feed the GP with information about PID, e.g.: new treatment, results/outcomes of HSCT, invitation to meetings, new papers.

Right now I looking for colleagues all around Europe - both specialists and GPs. It would be fantastic to have 2-3 GPs from every country, but less will do.

Please contact me if you would like more information or to be involved:
