News & Views - Winter 2011 – OUT NOW!

We had our wonderful team of volunteers back in National Office last week (a day later than planned, following a delivery error), packing all the new copies of News & Views to be sent out to our members. We’d like to say a big THANK YOU to all those that helped, especially since they changed days on such short notice. We really couldn’t do it without the help of our volunteers.

The new issue of News & Views includes;

•A very informative article on ‘SLE and the Kidney’

•A summary of the Belimumab application to NICE

•‘Joint Problems in SLE’ by Dr Rainer Klocke

•Full feedback from the LUPUS UK National Survey carried out in 2009 which received 3017 responses

•Stories and pictures of our fantastic fundraisers

•The latest news from the National Office

•Poppy Jaman tells her lupus story

•Useful advice and information to help you manage your lupus

•Reports from our regional support groups

•Plus LOADS more

•This is possibly our biggest issue to date at 45 full colour pages

Another big thank you goes to everyone that contributed their stories and photos for this issue. We always need high quality photos for consideration. If you have some photos that you’d like to possibly see in the next issue then please email them to

If you have any stories then you can write to ‘Dear News & Views’ (Unfortunately we can’t guarantee they will be published and we aren’t in a position to reply to these letters).

Hi Paul,

Just wanted to say I enjoyed the latest issue of News and Views and found it very informative. Especially the articles on SLE and the Kidney and Joint Problems in SLE, both with relate to me.

Keep up the good work and thank you.



Hi Sharon,

I'm so pleased to hear that you enjoyed it. I'll pass this along to Christine, our publications editor. I'm sure that she'll be pleased to know her work is appreciated.


Received mine last Saturday - highly recommended. Very interesting and useful reading. Each issue seems to have something relevant to what I am going through at the time.

Thanks to all involved in distributing and contributing to the same. :)


Hi Yols,

I'm glad that you find it useful and interesting. A lot of work goes into each issue from many different people so it is nice to hear that it is all worth while.


Hiya All - I was delighted with the latest News and Views magazine with the publishing of my numerous articles on behalf of the South and East Scotland Lupus Committee - we have been very active this year so lots to report and I am now getting ready to sort through our stories for me to write up for the March edition - I am sure that too will be a bumper issue! Great stuff!!
