PANS PHYSICIAN'S NETWORK TREATMENT GUIDELINES
These guidelines were first published in May 2018 following several meetings between the PANS Physicians' Network UK (PPNUK) and the Charity PANS PANDAS UK. Based on the US treatment guidelines originally written by the US PANDAS Physicians' Network, these guidelines have been modified to adapt to UK medical practices with input from the following NHS Foundation Trusts:
Birmingham Children's Hospital Kings College Hospital
South London and Maudsley County Durham and Darlington
Collaboration from doctors in the Republic of Ireland
GP's are strongly encouraged to start treatment and investigations early as early treatment is likely to improve the long term outcome of these patients.
Please note: These guidelines are not currently available to the general public but medical professionals can access them by contacting the charity here.
