Scleroderma family day 2020

The scleroderma family day is an opportunity for patients, their families and friends to talk with the doctors who look after them, receive education and ask questions about the treatment of their disease.

Scleroderma Family Day - Saturday 02 May 2020 - Postponed to 2021

To mimimise risk to patients and families during the Covid-19 pandemic we are cancelling the 2020 Scleroderma Family Day. This is unfortunate but in line with our hospital policy of reducing potential exposure. It is disappointing but it would be difficult to celebrate the 25th Family Day in the way that it deserves. We will therefore postpone our anniversary Family Day to 2021. The raffle will still proceed, and winners will be contacted in due course.
