Oxford and Thames Valley Local MDS Group

Support, Information, Awareness & Campaigns for those affected by Myelodysplastic Syndromes

This group meets every 3 months on Friday mornings between 10.30 am and 12.30 pm. Led by Advanced Nurse Practitioner Kirsty Crozier and assisted by patients Claudia Richards and Gwyneth Brown-Lowe.
Contact: For more information and dates of meetings, please call Kirsty Crozier on Tel: 01865 57202
Additional Contact: Gwyneth Brown-Lowe and Claudia Richards, two MDS patients who attend meetings of the Oxford Patient Support Group, help Kirsty with the co-ordination of the Group and its meetings.

They feel some people may value the opportunity to have contact with other members of the Group between meetings.

If you are interested please email Claudia on claudia.richards@fsmail.net with your full name, contact telephone number, preferred email address and the name of the hospital at which you (or your family member) are being treated.

These details will be circulated to members of the Group who have opted for direct contact with others.

If you would be willing to act as a point of contact at your local hospital (for instance, taking in posters/leaflets, being a contact for any MDS patients who have not previously come to the Support Group meetings), please also mention this in your email.

Gwyneth and Claudia also welcome any suggestions for future meeting topics/speakers and for any other type of event (Coffee Morning, Fundraiser etc.) which you feel the Group should consider.
