Useful Information

This section of the website houses information that may be useful for patients with RSD/CRPS and their family or carer. Although we try to keep the information as up to date as possible it is advisable to check information on the relevant websites, for example the Department of Works and Pensions.

Depression and suicidal thoughts can be a big part of RSD/CRPS life, so we felt it essential to add some advice and help sources for these subjects.

There is also a lot of confusion about who can apply and be awarded a Blue Badge (UK only) and this document could be helpful.

There is a list of healthcare providers and what you can expect from each, or use the list to see if you would benefit from a referal to any of those mentioned. Health costs too is a minefield - even if working it is possible in some cases to claim reimbursments of some health costs, including travel expenses to and from appointments.

The benefits advice is kept as up to date as possible, but it is advised that you get in touch with the Benefits Helpline for the most recent information if need be.

We have included RSD links, these are to support groups, information pages etc and hopefully will help build a bigger support network for those suffering from RSD/CRPS and their family and friends.

We have a few information leaflets to download, but please remember you can download any of the website to print off and use where you feel necessary as long as you don't alter the content in any way before distributing. The site is copyright to the owners and permission should be asked before any alterations are made.

There is a section for other information that didn't quite fit into the above categories.

If you have any information to share that would be helpful to our readers and members then please email
Catherine to ask about inclusion to this website.
