Education and discussion evening

25 June 2015

On Monday 6 July patients with vasculitis or lupus are invited to attend an education and discussion evening at the Royal Free Hospital.

The event is being run by the kidney doctors in the lupus and vasculitis team and patients will have the chance to hear about the latest research developments and clinical trials and to ask questions about their treatment. Patients will also be able to meet and talk to others with the same condition. 

Family and friends of patients are also welcome to attend the event and refreshments will be served.

Dr Sally Hamour, consultant nephrologist at the Royal Free Hospital, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for patients to discuss their condition with a range of experts here at the hospital, and also to meet other patients who can offer support. You may have some concerns about your treatment or you may feel isolated – it really helps to talk to people with the same condition, so you know you are not alone.”

The event will be from 6-8pm and is being held in the Sheila Sherlock Centre, near the medical school entrance on the ground floor.
