Welsh GH Social and Support Group

Wales map and flagFollowing a Patient Information Day in Cardiff in January 2017, a group of our Welsh members, led by Trustee Lisa Flude from Cardigan, have formed the Welsh GH Social and Support Group.

The new group will be organising its first meeting in the summer of 2017, and will also be setting up a dedicated social media (Facebook) page to allow Welsh members to keep in touch.

Members wishing to make contact with the new group can email wales@haemochromatosis.org.uk or join the GH Wales/Cymru Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/373045636411063.

At a first meeting of a fledgling organising committee last week the topics discussed included fundraising for the society, awareness raising amongst Welsh GPs, lobbying the Welsh National Assembly, and organising a meeting in Cardiff in September.

Lisa said “I am very pleased that several volunteers came forward to help do this after the really successful Patient Information Day we ran in Cardiff, and I’m looking forward to regular meetings in the future.”

More information will be posted on the society’s website and social media pages as it becomes available.
