SOLACE SG is a voluntary group working to improve the quality of life for people living with Sickle Cell and Thalassemia. You can help us by attending our monthly gatherings and becoming a member.
SOLACE?s main objective is to improve the quality of life of those patients living with sickle cell and Thalassemia in Hackney, not excluding every patient attending sickle cell services at the Homerton hospital from other boroughs.
We believe in a holistic approach to the care and management of sickle cell with specific focus on improving quality of life (QoL).
SOLACE was found in early 2016 after the transformation of the existing patient support group which had existed for some years. Sickle cell patients locally, voted to appoint new members of the Board in 2016 in a view to transform the objectives of the group.
The new leadership has focused on building on the legacy of supporting and advocating for patients living with sickle cell in Hackney.
