Any material which the Parish Council considers offensive or defamatory will be removed immediately. This may include all of the comments being removed from certain news stories.

Arthritis Action’s Spring activities

 

We will be continuing with Online Arthritis Action Groups to support people living with Arthritis while we can’t meet in person. I’m also still available for one-off presentations on self-management of arthritis via zoom, teams or the phone if you have a group who would be interested.

We also have a recording of our new webinar ‘Arthritis and the COVID-19 Vaccine‘ available. It was presented by Medical Advisor Dr Wendy Holden, Consultant Rheumatologist at North Hampshire Hospitals, addressing all aspects of living with Rheumatoid Arthritis, including diagnosis, treatment, diet, and the impact of COVID-19 and shielding. The webinar also addressed questions submitted live by the audience.

Arthritis Action Online Groups

Arthritis Action Groups are an opportunity for people with arthritis to talk with others and share their tips on how to manage their arthritis and stay active whilst at home, and we actively welcome new attendees. We discuss a variety of self-management techniques. Participants will need to contact us directly for the log in instructions for the meeting, and we have produced ‘How To’ guides for those not familiar with using Zoom.
