Sophie attended and also Dr Mike Dennis, Consultant Haematologist, Director for Haematology Oncology at The Christie, Manchester.
There was time as people arrived to meet each other for the first time, introduce themselves and have a drink.
Sophie opened the meeting by giving an interesting talk on local patient groups and how they are established and how beneficial they can be.
She introduced Dr Dennis and welcomed him to the meeting, he then took part in an hour long question and answer session. His input and helpful responses to the many questions that were asked was very well received by us all. Everyone was pleased that he had attended and stayed for the whole event. He in turn was impressed by the number of people who had come along with an interest in MDS.
There was a further session where we all introduces ourselves and shared our experiences. I think everybody found this interesting and helpful. It was an opportunity to understand how MDS affects us all, patients and carers.
Unfortunately the meeting had to come to an end after more than 3 hours.
Everyone expressed positive views on this first meeting and a wish for further meetings.
Further meetings will be arranged and details will be announced on the web site. If you are in the Manchester area keep an eye open for further information.
Many thanks to Sophie and Dr Dennis.
