Oxford Regional Group - Meetings

Postby Claudia R » 24 Jul 2014 14:45

Date: Friday 22nd August 2014
Time: 10.30 am - 12.30 pm
Location: The Maggie's Centre, Churchill Hospital, Oxford OX3 7LE
(see https://www.maggiescentres.org/our-cent ... es-oxford/ for directions)

We have now booked the newly-opened MAGGIE’S CENTRE for our next meeting, which will take place on FRIDAY, 22ND AUGUST between 10.30 am and 12.30 pm.

Prof Vyas will join us at 11.30 am to provide feedback on MDS-related developments discussed at the international haematology event he attended last month in Milan - the Congress of the European Haematology Association (EHA). We will therefore open the meeting with refreshments and general discussion, and Prof Vyas's talk will be followed by a Q&A session which will last about 20 mins.

If you are able to come, please note that you need to park in one of the Churchill Hospital car parks, and not the one beside the Maggie's Centre, which belongs to the neighbouring Nursery.

All patients in the Oxford and Thames Valley area are welcome to attend, as are relatives and friends. This is an opportunity to get to know one another, share experiences and increase the support network in the area, particularly for newly-diagnosed patients.

For registration - or if you require more information - please do not hesitate to contact Kirsty Crozier, Advanced Nurse Practitioner, on 01865 235287.

Oxford Regional Group - Next Meeting & Christmas Lunch!

Postby ClaudiaRichards » 07 Nov 2014 12:40

Date: Friday 28th November 2014
Time: 10.30 am - 12.30 pm
Location: The Maggie's Centre, Churchill Hospital, Oxford OX3 7LE
(see https://www.maggiescentres.org/our-cent ... es-oxford/ for directions)

All patients in the Oxford and Thames Valley area are welcome to attend, as are relatives and friends. This is an opportunity to get to know one another, share experiences and increase the support network in the area, particularly for newly-diagnosed patients.

Our meeting will take the form of a "back to basics" session led by Kirsty, with an overview of the various types of MDS and the current approaches to treatment, managing symptoms etc. This will be an ideal opportunity to ask any questions or to offer any "tips" you may have for living as normal a life as possible with the disease.

Please note that parking for the meeting is available in any of the Churchill Hospital car parks, and not the one beside the Maggie's Centre, which belongs to the neighbouring Nursery.

All members who opt to join the Christmas Lunch party at The Britannia Inn following the meeting will need to pre-book via Claudia Richards (claudia.richards@fsmail.net) by Thursday 13th November, as the pub requires numbers and menu choices in advance.

For (first time) registration - or if you require more information - please do not hesitate to contact Kirsty Crozier, Advanced Nurse Practitioner, on 01865 235287.

:!: :) SPECIAL CHRISTMAS PUB LUNCH FOLLOWING MEETING !
http://www.mdspatientsupport.org.uk/event/oxford-group-patient-meeting-041215/
For those who wish, we would be delighted to have you join us for a special Christmas pub lunch at the Britannia Inn, Headington, from 13.00 pm onwards.

:arrow: Important !

If you would like to have the special festive menu, we will need to pre-order.
Therefore Please contact Kirsty or Claudia by Friday November 20th at the latest.
If you do not pre-register, you will of course still be able to attend the meal, but will have to choose off the standard pub menu.
Both menus are available on the Events webpage for that day.

It is a wonderful end of year idea of Claudia to organise this - so we hope many of you will be able to join in to thank her, Kirsty and Gwyneth for all their help in running this Oxford group.
It would truly mean a lot to us and them.
Have a wonderful time! :)
We hope you will join u
