Patient Support Groups and Information Evenings

All patients are welcome to attend these group meetings which offer support, information, and opportunity to meet and share experiences with other patients. Guest speakers with specific knowledge and experience relevant to our patients are often invited to attend to come along and talk to the group.

We also have a Group dedicated to men, held once a month on a Thursday evening.
