Royal College of Nursing features on PANS and PANDAS

It was brilliant to see the recent release of a blog about PANS and PANDAS from the Royal College of Nursing (RCN). Written by RCN Professional Lead for Neuroscience Jonathan Beebee, this informative blog post raises awareness of the conditions and shares the recent publication of the PANS PANDAS Working Group Statement (for which the RCN is a co-signatory).

You can read the blog post in full here.
