York is nearest to me but that's at least an hours drive away. Must look for more local groups than that on other sites.


That's a shame. I have the option of two, my nearest is less than 10 mins away & the other is 30 mins. There won't be any other NRAS groups but I suppose you could ask your Rheumy team if they have a support group or know if there are any nearer to you?
