  1. Rick Dallaway

    Fantastic! All the information you need in one handy wallet sized card.

  2. Linda Jackson

    It is very useful to carry the card in your purse, to check your symptoms or to show m ducal staff if you have to be admitted to hospital. Also in an emergency they can see straight away that you have PSC.

  3. Maria

    Great product. Thank you PSC Support for another great tool to help us PSCers!

  4. Katherine Walcot

    I love the security that this little card gives me. Thank you PSC Support.

  5. Natasha Graysmark

    Small enough to carry daily in my phone case and big enough to pack with info! So helpful, and exactly what you need to help explain things when it matters.

  6. Justine

    My son carries his in his wallet. He’s off to Uni soon so it gives me some peace of mind that he can refer to it or use it in hospital for a more swift assessment and treatment. Fingers crossed he won’t have to use it, but it’s there if he does.

  7. Nikki

    Perfect size for storing in purseand includes all info thats relevant to share. Fantastic idea and a credit to the people that helped produce it. Thankyou.

  8. Wendy Lewis

    Valuable professionally produced information leaflet. Keep it in my purse. Haven’t used it yet but very reassuring to know I have it.

  9. Kelly-joy Sherwood

    This is a handy little card you can keep in your wallet to carry around for peace of mind should we have an attack. Alot of doctors and nurses are still unaware of PSC and the issues that a rise from it so its very handy to be able to give to them and show them rather than having to try to explain all about it. I would definitely recommand getting one if you have PSC even if you haven’t had an attack before as sadly with PSC you never know when you might have a cholangitis attack and need someone to recognise the symptoms quickly to get the treatment you need fast.

  10. Jenny

    So handy to have in my phone case. I have shown mine to the nurses at my GP surgery numerous times and they all commented “if only more rare conditions could have something like this”. I also find mine super handy when I’m feeling under the weather and I’m not sure if it’s cholangitis or something else.

  11. Matthew

    A true lifesaver! I had cause to use my card recently during an acute Cholangitis attack which had progressed to Sepsis. It gave me clarity and helped me to explain my concerns to the triage nurse to speed up admission through A&E

  12. Julie Howell

    Great card, very informative. Perfect to card in your card holder, wallet or handbag

  13. Elsbeth

    Helped me to realise I had a cholangitis attack. Haven’t had to use it in hospital yet (touch wood) but always carry it with me. My husband also has one, just in case…

  14. karena Brown

    My daughter finds this really useful and gives her peace of mind when travelling to areas not in commuting distance to her lead hospital.

  15. Shirley Roy

    Great item to have, I always carry it with me, very informative.

  16. Heather Marshall

    It’s a perfect size to keep in my purse. It’s great to have the reassurance of knowing I always have it with me incase I need to visit A&E or the out of hours service as staff often don’t have much knowledge about PSC or cholangitis.

  17. Julie Taylor

    Very informative, the card is with me wherever I go. Thank you guys.

  18. Susan

    Fantastic portable guide to cholangitis. Excellent idea to make it wallet sized. Thank you PSC Support! 🙂

  19. Carl wright

    Great information to have especially when the nurses in A&E give you the blank look when you say you have PSC

  20. Russell Davies

    Excellent, used on my last admission to hospital,a doctor in A & E who did not know about PSC and a doctor on the ward, both said it helped them know what they were dealing with.

  21. Hannah

    Fantastic, my husband has used it many times in hospital. Its helped all members of staff. A medical student even asked to take notes from it. I would highly recommend.

  22. J C Denson

    Told hospital when admitted but they had info about me on record
