The B12 Society is a Scottish registered charity (SC046066) first launched in September 2015. We are all volunteers, and began as a patient group with four founder members: Heather Hardie, Cindy Stirrat, Siobhan Liehne and Jackie Liehne.

 

We have now grown, and are proud to have health professionals and other patient volunteers making up our associate committee. Working together we support people who experience vitamin B12 deficiency, and provide accurate up-to-date education on the condition for health professionals.

We keep abreast of the latest studies and research on vitamin B12, and host an online support group called Vitamin B12 Wake Up helping and advising people who have the condition, and those who think they may have to investigate.

 

With hundreds of new members joining us every month, we are the world largest vitamin B12 deficiency support group, so have a huge resource for conducting surveys, and collecting anecdotal evidence from a range of different people from all corners of the globe.

 

With an increasing number of health professionals joining this group, the demand for our advisory services is also growing.

OUR MISSION

Our aim is to create and provide quality, up-to-date training on vitamin B12 deficiencies for health professionals and public groups in the United Kingdom. Thus ensuring the most effective treatment plans, and best possible outcome for B12 deficiency and Pernicious Anaemia patients.
