Swindon

A very warm welcome to the Swindon Local Group. Our aim is to support all people with coeliac disease and their families and to raise awareness of the condition. The group is open to all ages, including those with no formal diagnosis of coeliac disease. We normally have an event or two every month. Due to the coronavirus we have suspended all our events scheduled up to the end of May 2020, we will review the situation later in the Spring.

******************************************************************

16 March 2020 Update: The government’s recommendation means that some people with coeliac disease should be included within the high risk group based on the increased risk of having reduced spleen function (called hyposplenism). Around 30% of people with coeliac disease have hyposplenism.

In the first instance you should access the following sites for more advice, details and contacts:

  Coeliac UK - Coeliac Disease and Coronavirus or call the Coeliac UK Helpline on 0333 332 2033

  NHS - Coronavirus Overview

  UK Government Response - Coronavirus
