It doesn't seem likely that we shall be able to resume face-to-face meetings for a while yet.
We still want to maintain our services to you, and provide you with all the regular news about MDS, as well as giving you an opportunity to connect to one another virtually. We know how important patient to patient contact is for everyone.
We've held a number of online/virtual Zoom meetings and feedback has been very positive. Patients who had not been able to attend face-to-face meetings for various reasons were able to participate.
Whatever happens during and after the COVID-19 pandemic, we aim to maintain some virtual meetings, as it has attracted new members, who had not attending face to face meetings previously.
This current meeting is open mainly to all Oxford and Anglia members and their carers.
Many patients have already embraced the video meeting call technology Zoom (or something similar) in order to stay in touch with family members during the lockdown.
If you haven't, please contact us. If you are a first time user of video call – please don’t worry. The first 15 minutes of each meeting will be set aside to sort out any technical issues.
If you have not contacted the MDS UK Patient Support Group before and would like to receive a full Patient Information Pack, please contact our Main Office.
