Congratulations to PINNT on their 30th Anniversary
The inclusion of a patient group at the core of BAPEN was truly ground breaking. Following BAPEN’s launch 25 years ago, PINNT has been at the centre of decision making within its multidisciplinary framework, informing and influencing the professionals of the other core groups to always look at things from the patient's perspective. This has led to many practical improvements in care for adults, children, their families and carers both in hospital and the community. The personal support provided by PINNT for the past 30 years to its members is an essential component of the care of those whose lives have been turned upside down by the need for artificial nutritional as well as by their underlying conditions. This support is derived from the personal experiences of its members who are therefore uniquely qualified. Leaders and members of PINNT should be congratulated for their enthusiasm, innovation and courage - often in the face of ongoing personal illnesses
