Maidstone Group - June 2019 report

Monday 24th June

Monday's meeting was a presentation by a group member who had attended the PMR/GCA Portsmouth Roadshow on 2nd June 2018 at the Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth. (This has been reported in the Summer 2018 edition of NewsWire.)

The subjects covered were "What's new in PMR/GCA" presented by Dr E. Wong; "Living well with Rheumatology"  and "Keeping Active" presented by C.Beevor; and "What do GPs need to know?" presented by Kate Gilbert.

Several lively discussions were sparked off during the presentation and I believe everyone left having benefited in some way from the meeting.

Our thanks to Christine for all her efforts.

The next Support meeting is on Monday 22 July 2019

Maidstone Group Meeting - May 2019

Tuesday, 28th May 2019

The May meeting, on a Tuesday because of the Bank Holiday, was attended by a small but select group! 

Amongst matters discussed was the danger of forgetting to take one's steroids! It can happen if the usual routine is thrown out of kilter as one group member discovered to his cost the other week. He assured us all that it would never happen again.....

It appears that, thankfully, GPs are becoming more and more aware of PMR and GCA. A surgery in Whitstable, Kent, has reportedly over 300 cases of this condition and there are plans afoot to organise a Support Group in that area. 

The next Maidstone meeting is on Monday 24th June when Christine is going to give us a talk about one of the charity's Road Shows.
