Meeting other people with MPDs at forums

Last week I represented MPD Voice at the Edinburgh patients' forum, and I met some lovely people. Unfortunately due to the adverse weather conditions, which caused landslides and severe flooding not many people attended. We had talks from Dr Mira Farquharson and Dr Zor Maung about blood letting for PV patients, and drug trials. It is always a pleasure to be able to talk to other people with MPDs, it does help to talk to someone who actually knows what it feels like to have one of these disorders, it can take away some of the fear and uncertainty.

  • I hope to go to the Cardiff Forum. It will be a day trip from Bristol, but it should be interesting and I might meet someone else with MF who lives locally.

  • Hi . I would definitely be interested in a Cardiff Forum but I would have to travel quite a long way. Do you have any details about the venue and when it will be held please?


  • There may be a forum in Cardiff on THursday 4th October, but there is one in London on Weds 21st November. I found this in the MPD Voice website. I think this website is an off shoot of MPD Voice and there seems to be no reference to this website on Voice.

    It seems we have to request to go to the Cardiff Forum. I suggest you log into MPD Voice and go to upcoming events. I have just requested to go to the Cardiff Forum

  • we are working on putting the link from our website to this site at the moment.

  • Many thanks for your reply. I shall let you know how I get on with the Cardiff forum as that will be coming up first.

  • there will indeed be a forum in Cardiff on Thursday 4 October, I should have the final details of times, venue and programme by the end of this week, I will then be able to update our website.
