APS in the news

Since our charity started back in 2001, we have seen a huge rise in the number of newspaper, magazine, journal and television articles about APS.

This is good news as it means the message is getting through and people, particularly healthcare workers, will be more aware of the condition.

We only tend to list the national or pivotal academic articles here, but would like to thank all of our supporters who help raise awareness by contacting their local newspapers and radio stations. If you would like to help, please do consider becoming one of our media volunteers.
