Claire Casswell - Patient Panel Member
Claire Casswell

I am a working mother of two and have been registered as blind since I turned 19 as a redilt of Stargardts Macular Distrophy.

As I have experienced genetic testing first-hand 10 years after my diagnosis and received no offer of genetic testing for my children who will undoubtedly carry the gene I was keen to get involved in this panel.

I understand the importance of receiving the service early on, both as a patient but also as a parent.

Join our panel!

We are extremely keen to hear from as broad a section of the population we serve as possible. You can find out more about our panel, and how to join by visiting our page here or by contacting Debbie Beirne on
