  • Congratulations upon the commencement of your Portal.

    It’s success will ultimately be measured by the popularity and Visitor Numbers to the Site.

    Wishing you every success!

    • Many thanks Steven.
      I am hoping that patients will find useful to engage with each other and share tips, advice and resources. If you have recommendations please tell us. Best wishes, Cristina

  • I saw a brief article in the local newspaper about an event at the de Vere Hotel, reebok Stadium on the 8th December. I would like to attend but can’t find anywhere on the website how to book a place. Can you point me in the right direction please?
