This weekend, as part of the preparation work for the Narcolepsy Charter project introduced at the last Narcolepsy UK conference, we will be distributing a short-form pilot version of a survey at the arranged meet-ups to help us understand all the needs and factors affecting the lives of people with narcolepsy in the UK. Once we have processed the feedback we will then progress to an expanded online survey and hope to have as many people as possible engage with it.

The article focusses on the experiences of NHS staff, who claim they were required or pressured into having the vaccination without being informed of the somewhat unusual circumstances regarding it's rushed roll out and relatively low level of testing. Some of these same staff who were adversely affected by developing narcolepsy symptoms have now been left to cope with what can be devastating life changes without support.
