AGM and Members' Day 2016
OUR 2016 AGM AND MEMBERS’ DAY ON WEDNESDAY 15 JUNE WAS A GREAT SUCCESS
As in previous years, the day started with our charity AGM after which we held our Members’ Day, which provided the opportunity to hear from three excellent speakers, have a chat and share experiences over lunch and take part in small group discussions.
President of PMRGCAuk, Professor Bhaskar Dasgupta, Consultant Rheumatologist, spoke first about the new GCA guidelines and the fast-track pathway (FTP) piloted at the Southend University Hospital NHS Trust.
Trustee Dr Kate Gilbert was our second speaker. Many of you will have read the first edition of her highly acclaimed book Polymyalgia Rheumatica and Giant Cell Arteritis: A survival guide.
Our third speaker was Dr Saleyha Ahsan, one of the presenters of the BBC's 'Trust Me I'm A Doctor'. As well as presenting the programme, Dr Ahsan works in the accident and emergency department at Whipps Cross Hospital in North East London. She is also widely respected for her outstanding and brave voluntary work in hospitals in conflict zones around the world.
