The Royal Brompton

I,m going to The Royal Brompton on Wednesday 30th July to take part in their Research Event,assuming I,m fit enough to get there.Back down to 30mg prednisolone and struggling a bit ,should be down to 20mg by then.If any of you good people are going please feel free to say hello,I,ll be the odd looking one with the long white beard, probably have to be in my wheelchair.I,m hoping I will have received my "party pack" from BLF(healthunlocked)so should be easily picked ( on lol) out.Hope to meet some of you lovely folk there,have a soopah week D. :D

  • Thanks Argana,should be interesting if nothing else.D.

  • Enjoy the day Farmer. Hope you meet some people from here. I'm so jealous. Let us know how it goes.xx

  • I am sure it is a different RBH study, but just had one of my BE members dropped out from a study after walking down Oxford Street traffic etc etc and other tests to be told he was'nt well enough and the promised remuneration withdrawn - I will investigate and advise!

  • Let us know how you get on I'm to far away living in Shropshire

  • The royal Brompton is huge! The staff is great. There's some sort of cafeteria in the big entrance hall, so you can get a drink and sandwiches (I think it's got odd opening hours!).

    It will be interesting. enjoy it!

  • If you don't mind my asking Farmer D what study are they doing? it is a clinical trial for something , you didn't mention the specifics ...

  • They have,nt given any details,it seems to be about the affect of exercise on Copd.It ,s at the Muscle Unit with a physio and a doctor.I,ll try and find the link for you.D.
