the 1st east midlands mpn group meeting

the first mpn group meeting will be on the 21st January 2015 at 6.30pm till 8.30pm at Maggie's in the grounds of the city hospital Nottingham. go in the door and down the stairs to the kitchen and for the first meeting we will meet in there. could you let me know who might be attending please. Angela the specialist mpn nurse will be in attendance, this first meeting is quite informal and Angela will speak to us to introduce herself and see what we want from the group. the group will be on the third weds of each month 6.30pm to 8.30pm at Maggie's I hope that quarterly we will have different speakers for the first hour on various subjects that are of interest to mpn patients. for example specialist nurses and doctors, Macmillan, Maggie's ,carer association's, benefits advice etc. If there is anything in particular we need to know as a group we can hopefully source someone to come and talk to us about this. I am hoping the group will support us as individuals but also our families and give us the information to live with our condition.i look forward to meeting you all michelle

an update maz will also be joining us which I think us absolutely fantastic
