Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of every month, 6 – 8 pm, in the Maggie’s Centre, Gate 3, Nottingham City Hospital Campus, Hucknall Road, Nottingham, NG5 1PH.
The meetings are free to attend and are a great way to meet other people with MPNs, so you can share experiences, learn about MPNs, access information and support each other, we have a speaker at every meeting for the first hour talking on different subjects to include health and wellbeing, 24hr helpline, benefits etc, the last hour is spent talking to each other, giving help and support.
The meetings are facilitated by Angela Thompson, the MPN Clinical Nurse Specialist at Nottingham City Hospital and Maz Campbell-Drew, Administrator for MPN Voice. Angela is on hand at each meeting to answer questions relating to MPNs.
