The three recent Spring meetings were well attended, so thanks to everyone who came along and made them a success. We hope you all enjoyed and found them useful.

At both the York and Hull meetings, we were privileged to have Ruth Newton, a specialist rheumatology nurse from Scarborough hospital, come along.
Ruth gave an excellent talk about her specialist nursing role, some guidelines on how to manage the disease and also some information on current research studies.

At our Gomersal meeting we were spoilt, having two professionals visit us.

Alan Pollard, specialist rheumatology nurse and Helen Worsnop, a physiotherapist, came along from Bradford hospital. Helen gave a very interesting talk on managing fatigue with vasculitis and maintaining general fitness. Alan took the floor to answer questions on vasculitis.
