Hello, I’m Janet and I work on the dystonia helpline.

I’ve held a variety of roles in health and social care: pathology department within a large NHS hospital; family and dementia care social work, mental health and learning disability support services.

I came to the Society in 2009, and in spite of the above had never come across dystonia. In listening to people’s stories and experiences, I’ve gained an understanding of the challenges and battles that many people with dystonia face. I am pleased to be part of a compassionate and knowledgeable helpline team.
