Shropshire mtg report - January 2019

Telford: 21st January 2019

Five members attended the Meeting Point House so we had plenty of time to discuss our own PMR/CGA journeys.

We heard from one of the TV show, 'Trust me, I'm a Doctor' participants (Mr N), who has GCA, about his role in the programme and also how he starred(albeit only his armpit is in view!), in an educational video for medical staff as to the correct way to carry out scans to identify blockages within the blood vessels. This was carried out by Professor Dasgupta (our President), at Southend University Hospital, who has accepted responsibility for Mr N's case and is now treating him with the new drug Tocilizumab

Venues and dates were discussed for the rest of 2019 and it is hoped to have three further meet-ups, 12th March at Leebotwood, June in Shrewsbury, and October in Oswestry. Further details will be announced as we confirm details.

This could be followed by a Christmas get together if enough members are interested.
