Spring Meeting in West Yorkshire

Lynne tells me that we have two professionals lined up for the West Yorkshire meeting. She’s arranged for Helen Worsnop, from the Bradford physiotherapy department, talk to us about fatigue and general fitness. And Allan Pollard, a specialist rheumatology nurse from the BRI, has kindly agreed to come along as well.

Scarborough Hospital Rheumatology Patients Support Group

Finally, Ruth Newton tells me that she will be holding another rheumatology patient support group meeting on 25th march at Scarborough Hospital Social Club, between 10:00am and 12:00noon. This meeting will focus on Sjögren’s Syndrome, which may be of interest as I believe a few of you have it as a secondary condition.

 

All the best,

 

Richard, Lynne, Jennifer, Rachel, Sam and Suze
