Hi Everyone
Just to let you know there is a Rotherham Support Group Meeting alive and well in R'ham, S Yorkshire. We generally meet on the FIRST MONDAY of each month at The Brentwood pub, Moorgate Rd, R'ham - just up the road from the hospital! All are welcome to join us from 8pm. We also have special meetings at the hospital, where we are joined by the Clinical Director, Mrs Anju Kumar, who sees us PCOS girls on a regular basis in her clinic. Our group is very friendly, relaxed, and ON THE LOOK OUT FOR NEW MEMBERS! For any more details, send me an email.

Hi Everyone
We all had a great meeting last night. Mrs Kumar (Consultant Gynae and Clinical Director at R'ham Gen Hosp) gave an excellent talk on new treatments for PCOS. She gave hope of a genetic breakthrough (within 20yrs!) to help eradicate PCOS. She also answered questions that people had... covering diagnosis for young people, acne, counselling, electrolysis, genetic causes and medication for menopausal PCOS sufferers.
The official meeting ended at 9.15pm, when we moved to the pub for a meal and a drink!

Our NEXT MEETING is on Monday 15th December, when we'll be having a Christmas Meal together. Menus are available. New people are ALWAYS welcome to join us! We're a great friendly bunch - come and meet us.

You mentioned you have group meetings up at the hospital? I was just wondering if there's any of those coming up at all as I'd love to join you :)

Also, I heard Mrs Kumar had left? Any word of who else would be able to join the meeting as a speaker or anything?


New Meeting times for Rotherham

Hi IronSea
Good to hear from you. We haven't got any meetings lined up at the hospital yet, and yes it's true Mrs Kumar has left Rotherham and is now working at a hospital in Cardiff. She moved there to be with her husband, who had moved up there 18mths previous, for his new job.
As for other speakers, I'm working on the Endocrinologist at the hospital, Dr Franke. Mrs Kumar's replacement has gazzumped RGH and got another job elsewhere, so not sure what is happening there!

The Rotherham group now meets EVERY SECOND THURSDAY at 8pm at The Brentwood Two for One pub/hotel on Moorgate Rd, Rotherham.

You would be most welcome to come along. Our next meeting dates are:
Thursday 12th Feb, Thursday 19th March (delayed cos of my 40th birthday!), Thursday 16th April (delayed cos of Easter).

Look forward to meeting up with you sometime.
Beansprout :-)
