PINNT: A support & advocacy group for people on Home Artificial Nutrition (HAN)


Appetite for Life

We would like to share the story of a patient – Monsterrat Moya North (Montse) who, despite the severity of her condition gastroparesis has an inspiring ‘appetite for life’ and feels compelled to help others less fortunate than herself and raise awareness of her condition.

We work to support all nutrition patients and their carers through information, resources and networking. We also welcome and work with healthcare professionals, industry (in relation to products and services) and the general public and of course, PINNT members, both adults and children.

Our aims are:

  • to promote greater understanding of the therapies amongst patients, potential patients and the medical profession.
  • to provide contact between patients
  • to work towards improving homecare services and range of equipment
  • have a united voice to campaign for a better, flexible and safer service.

Over the years we have not only brought together patients from around the world, but also doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dietitians and other healthcare professionals, industry as well as other charities working in the field of artificial nutrition worldwide.
