PMR-GCA Support East Anglia

PMR-GCA Support East Anglia

PMR-GCA Support East Anglia offers support to all those in the east suffering from polymyalgia rheumatica and/or giant cell arteritis.  Everyone is welcome to attend meetings, members and spouses or carers are all welcome.

At the October meeting at the Community Centre, Needham Market, Suffolk there was an opportunity for everyone to have an informal chat and share experiences with others whilst enjoying refreshments before listening to a talk by Professor Bhaskar Dasgupta, Consultant rheumatologist at Southend University Hospital and Leading expert on PMR and GCA. This was an excellent, informative talk followed by him answering members' questions.  It was testament to his reputation that there were over 50 attended.

It was the last meeting organised by Maryan Fidler before she leaves the area around Christmastime.

GOOD NEWS - a new Chairman has been found.  Dr David Rose, a retired dentist will be taking on the position for future meetings.

Members' informal get-togethers for coffee/tea have continued successfully, taking place in Stowmarket,  Woodbridge and Norwich.  It is hoped that these get-togethers may be extended to cover other areas, they are becoming a regular feature between meetings at Needham Market.

Next informal get-togethers are:

Stowmarket - Thursday, 23rd November, 10-30am, at the Osier café in the Museum of East Anglian Life IP14 1DL

Woodbridge - Thursday, 30th November - 2pm in the café at  Wyevale Garden Centre IP13 6HX

Norwich - Monday, 5th February 2018, 10-30am in the café at Notcutts Garden Centre, Daniels Road, Norwich NR4 6QP
