The NHS Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Screening Programme

The NHS Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Screening Programme are inviting people who have experienced the screening process for sickle cell, to tell your own personal stories.

They are building a bank of stories that will help explain what sickle cell is and how people deal with it on a day to day basis.  Stories will either be written up with photos, or filmed; they will then be uploaded onto the Programme’s website or used in promotional material.  Their aim is to dispel any misunderstandings or prejudices that can surround sickle cell.

We believe that this is a positive way to bring greater understanding.  Interviews and filming will take place in late July in central London and small amount of money will be offered in thanks.  Filming will be optional for those who feel uncomfortable being on camera.

They would welcome you and any family involvement.  If you feel you would be able to give your time to aid this good cause, or would like to simply find out more, then please either contact Kalpna Patel on 020 8963 7793 or Claire Morgans on 0207 400 4480 or e: (
