AMEND UK Medical Advisory Team (AMAT)
AMEND takes its responsibility of supplying accurate information to patients very seriously. As such, the AMEND Medical Advisory Team are imperative to the production of our patient resources such as our website and patient information books. All our advisors give their time freely and AMEND is very grateful for their help and commitment.
Note: AMEND is not allianced with any one particular medical facility and tries to ensure that its advisors are geographically spread in order to provide balanced opinion and information.
