PMRGCAuk Surrey Support Group

Members enjoying Christmas Party 2017

The Surrey Group meets every two months in the Function Room at The River Bourne Club, Heriot Road, Chertsey, Surrey, KT16 9DR.  During 2018, it will reach its 7th year since inception, with an average of 30 members getting together at each meeting in support of each other as they 'journey' through the maze that is PMR and/or GCA and steroid treatment.  Whilst some meetings are run on an informal basis, at others we have guest speakers in attendance, mostly from the NHS but occasionally we have talks by therapists in alternative treatments.   It is a very friendly group and all are welcome, including partners/carers.

Our Surrey Group

Hurry, hurry, hurry,

There’s a meeting on in Surrey.

We’ll be queuing at the door

But there’s always room for more.


A time to chat, to listen and learn.

Express a worry, maybe a concern.

A time to discover new medical trends

But also a place to meet old friends.


Nasty little devils these rotten ills

We do as we’re told, we take the pills

We try so hard, we do our best

But feeling ill is such a pest.


Poorly eyes, sore hips and shoulders?

Bodies feeling like heavy boulders?

Trying to stand but can only stoop?

Help is at hand with our friendly Group!


Great speakers full of information

We sit there rapt in admiration

Their knowledge helping us to cope

Giving us help, giving us hope.


Tea and coffee, there’s  biscuits too

Dear Gordy – that is thanks to you.

We even have a Christmas ‘do’

And we’d love to extend an invite to you.


So a welcome awaits, please don’t be shy

Come along and just give us a try.

We’re a friendly crowd as you will see,

The Surrey Group – it’s the place to be!
