BIMDG: British Inherited Metabolic Disease Group


"our goal is to relieve persons suffering from inherited metabolic disease by advancing the education of persons involved in the diagnosis, care and treatment of such persons and to promote research into the treatment of inherited metabolic disease."

The BIMDG was formed in 1989.
The first annual meeting was in Bristol in May 1990 where the composition of the Committee was approved. The subject of that meeting was homocystinuria.
A constitution was written and approved by the AGM in the following year, 7 July 1991
Inherited Metabolic Disorders – A Service Vision for Setting Standards of Care and their Provision

Following a Workshop in the Autumn of 2002 in London it was agreed that it was important to set out a vision for how we should start to improve the provision of services for patients with inherited metabolic disorders. Continuing debate, through a number of draft documents, and discussion has meant a long gestation until we have arrived at this final version, published in Autumn 2004.
