People With Sickle Cell Are Seen as Hypochondriacs or Drug Addicts. Even a Nine-Year-Old Has to Scream to Get the Care They Need
Nine year old Jacob has sickle cell disease. His mother Sheree Hall doesn’t just understand the findings from the sickle cell patient experience survey, she lives them. As a working mum of two, navigating the healthcare service as a carer of a child with a long term condition, many of the experiences and challenges identified in our recent report are all too familiar.
In the below interview Sheree shares her day to day experiences of sickle cell disease, how it impacts family life and what more support and service improvements would mean to her personally. Her story is arresting, enlightening and highlights the importance of capturing and acting on people’s experiences in order to improve care.
