Message from Chris Dugmore, group facilitator:

“I am pleased to invite you all to the next meeting of the MDS Patient Support Group (Essex). This will be at the same venue, Central Baptist Church, on Monday, 7th August, 2015 from 10-12. (Please note different meeting day !). This time we do not have a speaker as it might be useful to spend more time getting to know each other- especially any new members who are coming along for the first time. Please let me know in good time whether you are attending or not as I need to order teas and coffees.
Please see the poster above. (I have sent this out to all local haematology departments but please take it along if you are attending clinics in the next few weeks or so and check that they are displaying it!). Additionally, if your GP surgery or library would display it, we might reach some more MDS patients who are out there but do not know we exist!

Herewith a link to the map for the venue. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided on arrival. The Cafe Oasis at this venue is open for lunch until 1.30 should anybody wish to stay for a light lunch or there are plenty of eating places in Chelmsford.


As well as the Park and Rides on either side of the City, there is the High Chelmer multi-storey opposite the venue which has a number of disabled parking spaces if you have a blue badge. There are also a number of disabled parking spaces in Market Road and at the venue itself but please contact them in advance if you wish to use it. Please see link to parking map of Chelmsford.


IMPORTANT: I would be grateful if you would confirm your attendance as soon as possible but by 27th July (Monday) at the latest as I do need to let the venue know about the refreshments or we end up paying too much or not having enough ordered! It is really important that you do this so please either tell me straight away or make a diary note to contact me.  Obviously, I recognise that health situations/ treatment requirements make it impossible to come and if there are lots of absentees I can cancel the event if necessary. The event is free to MDS patients and their families as it will be funded by MDS UK Patient Support Group.”
