dc.description.abstractGenetic Haemochromatosis (GH) is the most common inherited disorder in Caucasians affecting 1:200 in the UK. GH causes the body to absorb too much iron from the diet which over times can lead to systemic iron overload. Treatment involves weekly removal of blood termed venesection. There is little research that examines patients thoughts and feelings of being diagnosed with this life long disease which requires life long treatment in the form of venesections. Exploring the patients symptoms prior to and after venesection has not been fully studied
