SARCOIDOSISUK NURSE HELPLINE
People with sarcoidosis often find that they do not get the information and support they deserve from their GP or even specialist.
The SarcoidosisUK Nurse Helpline is run by nurses who themselves have sarcoidosis. The helpline exists to provide you with some information about your sarcoidosis . You can have as much time as you need to talk through your situation with someone who understands what you're going through.
A call with the nurse should give you some reassurance and a better idea of what to expect, especially if you have recently been diagnosed. Anyone affected by sarcoidosis is welcome to schedule a call.
To schedule a call, please send us a quick email letting us know the best number for the nurse to call you on and how sarcoidosis is affecting you.
"I had a great experience with the SILA helpline and spoke to the most lovely woman. I felt like I could talk freely and I felt for the first time in 2 years that someone was listening to me. So helpful and caring.”

"I felt as though I had nowhere to turn because there is very little awareness and support for those suffering with sarcoidosis - it was very useful to speak with someone who understands life with the condition as well as having the professional expertise. Thank you”

"The helpline was great. There is not much help or information except the internet, so speaking to someone who understands and can answer questions was brilliant, thanks.”
