Hepatitis support meeting - March

On March 8th the British Liver Trust is holding a one-day meeting at an hotel near Macclesfield.

There will be a presentation by a North West hepatologist about new treatments for hepatitis, and a presentation by a Specialist hepatitis nurse from a North West treatment centre. Both presentations will be followed by an opportunity to ask questions.
After that there will be 'workshops' for the delegates to find out about where to go for support and how to make themselves feel better.
During the 'Where do I go for support' session I'm giving delegates the opportunity to log on to the online support forum I use (and help administrate).

If anyone with hepatitis in the North of England reads this, I'll post the details here in case you are interested in coming along. It's a chance to meet others face-to-face, have a chat, lunch and tea, and ask questions to the professionals.

The date is March 8th, and it's at the Shrigley Hall Hotel, Macclesfield, Cheshire from 11am to 4.45pm. Contact Charlotte Bowen, Regional Support Group Co-ordinator , Tel: 01425 481320 or Mobile: 07738982558 if you would like to go.

See you there!
