MFT Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia (MSCT) Support Group

The Manchester Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia (MSCT) support group is an online platform that links hospital and community based healthcare professionals from Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) with patients registered with their services. Due to technology and having a world at our fingertips, many Sickle Cell & Thalassaemia patients and their families are looking for encouragement through online support groups and social networking sites. We hope that this platform will help bring people living with haemoglobin disorders together and help address some of these needs going forward.
