Nottingham Support Group for carers of children with eczema
The Nottingham Support Group for Carers of Children with Eczema (NSGCCE) is made up of carers of children with eczema and healthcare professionals. The information and support we offer is mainly web and electronic media based, and we offer this support without geographic boundaries.
There are around thirty patient information leaflets freely available on our website, which are also online streamed audio as well as downloadable documents and mp3 format.
NSGCCE has direct links to the senior clinicians and clinical trials teams in Nottingham.
Though unable to give specific advice, we can get very detailed answers to questions raised on the “Ask the Experts” service.
We disseminate information via our Blog, Email Alert Service and RSS Newsfeed as well as the website. Our blog also carries real life stories submitted by ordinary people about what they did to control their eczema.
On our website are links to publications that report on eczema related issues and where possible the site delivers video and audio podcasts made by the team and others if they relate directly to our cause.
We have a thriving Twitter community hosted at @eczemasupport.
There are comprehensive links on our website, one for professionals and one for lay people.
The site is well visited. (Visits for 118 different nations with an average of 103 visits per day during 2010).
The NSGCCE operates on an entirely voluntary basis and therefore does not have any funds to award. However, we can give PPI feedback for research applications.
