Our campaign aims to see information posters being displayed in primary care centres such as GP practices, optometrists and dental surgeries throughout the country.

Deirdre Collins who lives with Sjögren’s and is one of the co-founders of the Sjögren’s Ireland patient advocacy group said: ‘As someone who has been affected by this condition, I understand how debilitating it can be and how frustrating it is to have to wait so long for a diagnosis. We hope this campaign reaches out to people affected to let them know they are supported and empowers them to seek a diagnosis and treatment. From a healthcare professional’s prospective, the awareness campaign aims to ensure that Sjögren’s is at the forefront of doctors’, eye care and dental care providers’ minds when they are presented with common symptoms of the condition.’

Delighted our Ophthalmology partners in the Royal Victoria Eye and Ear Hospital are hanging their posters up in this week.
