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.
