Autonomic Charitable Trust

The Autonomic Charitable Trust (ACT) is a fantastic charity which has a dual mission; to raise awareness of autonomic disorders (which remain under-recognised), and to advance clinical research into conditions affecting the autonomic nervous system. They intend to improve knowledge of autonomic conditions amongst GP’s and hospital staff. Steady progress is being made, but much more is needed if it is to help the many with often undiagnosed or mistreated conditions. The ACT much longer aim is to foster establishment of autonomic centres in major UK institutions.
