London - October 2018 (change of venue and date)

Speaker: Anne O'Brien, senior lecturer in physiotherapy and director of learning and teaching in the School of Health and Rehabilitation at Keele University.

She is currently researching "The assessment and management of Polymyalgia Rheumatica from the Patient and Physiotherapist's perspective" for her doctoral research and hopes to update us on her findings.  Anne spoke at the Member's AGM in September 2017.

PLEASE RSVP - It is really appreciated to know if you plan to come – even if you ultimately cannot make it.  Just helps the organisers to know how much milk to buy and how many chairs to put out.  londonpmrgcauk@gmail.com

When: Thursday 18 October 2018, 13:00 – 16:00
Where: Toynbee Hall (Part of the Toynbee Hall complex), Education Room on the First Floor

Address:  28 Commercial Street, London, E1 6LS

Please note that there is also an address in Old Castle Street for Toynbee Hall - WE ARE NOT MEETING THERE, we are at 28 Commercial St!

  • Directions from Liverpool Street station (approx 15 mins).  Cross Bishopsgate in front of Liverpool St Station. Turn left and walk along until you come to Middlesex St. Go right onto Middlesex St and in a little while left into Wentworth St. Keep going straight along (it's part of the Petticoat Lane market area).Turn right onto Commercial St. Immediately cross the road and go right and walk down the street to no 28.
  • Directions from Aldgate Station - use exit for Aldgate High Street, which becomes Whitechapel High St and passes an exit for Aldgate East Tube Station - then follow directions below.
  • Directions from Aldgate East tube (nearest tube) Approx 5 - 10 mins. Come out of the station via exit 2 for Commercial Street and Petticoat Lane.  Once at street level turn left and left again just into Commercial St and cross road at the lights at the junction. Once across the road turn left up Commercial St.  You'll see a big sign for no 22, go beyond this under some scaffolding over the pavement and then look carefully for the sign on your right for no 28 and the Toynbee Hall, which is through some hoardings for new apartments being built (The hall is part of a complex, including an Arts admin centre and cafe too). Go along the 'alley' formed by the hoardings and once in the courtyard turn left and straight ahead you will see modern light wood doors. There should be a sandwich board by them with the day's meetings advertised. Go through and ask for directions to the lift for the Education Room (loos on the first floor too).

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

Cost: In order to finance the group, it would be great if those attending could donate £5 towards costs
