Patient's stories (video)

Patients stories form an important part of support as many people report that listening or reading to someone else who has the same infection and thinking about their experiences helps them feel less alone as they work out how to come to terms with their own illness. 

Carers are not forgotten as they are a very important part of the people we support - in fact if we only supported patients we would be negelcting half of the people we need to help. Two of the video's below are given by carers. 

These are short video clips from patients who have used the National Aspergillosis Centre and who have attended some of the patient support meetings held once a month at the University Hospital of South Manchester.
