Patients’ Experiences of Illness

DIPEx was established in 2001 by GP Dr Ann McPherson CBE and Dr Andrew Herxheimer after their own experiences of illness. Ann had been diagnosed with breast cancer and although she knew all the medical information, couldn’t find anyone else to talk to about the personal and emotional side of having the disease. This, and Herxheimer’s experience of knee replacement surgery, prompted them to come up with the idea of a patient experience website.  DIPEx later become know as HealthTalk.   How about sharing this with your patients so that they can see what other people have gone through which may answer many of their unanswered questions.
