The Greater London support group has started! The group will hold four meetings a year, at venues in Central London. Each venue will be within easy walking distance of a mainline train station. Each meeting has an expert speaker on a relevant area of interest, followed by networking and the opportunity to meet and share experiences with others.The group is open to anyone with PMR and/or GCA, friends, family and anyone who is interested in finding out more.

There is no formal membership for the group, but a small donation is suggested if you would like to attend.

If you would like to attend, please contact us and we'll send on all details.

ABOUT THE RHEUMA RESEARCH ROADSHOW

Anyone with Polymyalgia Rheumatica or Giant Cell Arteritis will agree that these conditions are under-researched. We all want to know more about what is happening in the world of research to find causes, treatments, and of course, a cure.  This "research roadshow" event will bring patients and researchers together to find out what is happening locally.  Queen Mary University of London houses a top immunopharmacology department. We are delighted that Professor Mauro Perretti will be joining us to share their latest work in the field of inflammation - its role in the healthy body, and what is happening when it goes wrong, as it does in GCA and PMR.  We will also be sharing some of the highlights of previous roadshows round the country, and there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and discuss the issues raised.

The roadshow is part of a project to gather together research information from around the country and develop educational materials for health professionals.

This event is supported by a grant to PMRGCAuk from the Wellcome Trust

Directions from Liverpool Street station. It’s easiest to come out via the escalator to the upper concourse and onto Bishopsgate(West), turn right, cross Bishopsgate at the pedestrian lights and go down Devonshire Row, then across Devonshire Square, which briefly becomes Cutler St. At the junction turn briefly left onto Harrow Place - you’ll see the Travelodge hotel in front of you - and immediately right into Artizan Street. The library is just past the Petticoat Tower, on your left (it’s not much of a ‘street’ now, more a narrow walkway beside an entrance to an underground car park – doesn't look very prepossessing!).

Directions from Aldgate tube station. This route is slightly longer than you might expect because of building works getting in the way, however it should take no more than 10 minutes walking at a leisurely pace. Exit Aldgate station on to Aldgate High Street and turn right. Walk down the High Street, passing Itsu on your left and St Botolph's without Aldgate church on your right. Turn right as soon as you can after St Botolphs's (opposite Boots) so that you follow the perimeter of the building site around until you almost reach the back of the church. Turn left at Tesco Express into Houndsditch and then take the first right - this is Stoney Lane. The Artizan Street Library is at the end of this road, just past the Post Office and Travelodge.

If you need parking, there are a few meter spaces (card or pay by phone) in Stoney Lane or Gravel Lane – best approach via Houndsditch.

Food & Drink
Hot drinks and a few nibbles will be made available. If you need ‘proper’ food, please bring it with you.

We look forward to seeing you then

London support group meeting - January 2017

It’s really helpful to know if you plan to come – even if you ultimately can’t make it.  Just helps to know how much milk to buy and how many chairs to put out!

SPEAKER

Our speaker: Amanda Ursell, a leading nutritionist who regularly appears on TV and in the media.  She has commented that she been fascinated, from an early age, by how so many aspects of what we eat and drink can affect how our bodies work and how we feel from hour to hour and day to day. Almost always, changing or at least tweaking what we consume can alter a mood, a disease outcome, a frame of mind. She hopes we can explore this idea further in respect to helping the coping process when living with Polymyalgia Rheumatica and Giant Cell Arteritis.
