Bromley & District Support Group
The Bromley Group was founded in 1994 and the aim has always been to give support, information and friendship to anyone affected by Osteoporosis.
We also offer a unique service for the community with a diversity of medical and health related topics at our meetings. The group has a well established rapport with local health professionals and valuable connections with other local support groups including the Kent Association for the Blind and Bromley Diabetics.
A selection of leaflets from the Royal Osteoporosis Society are available at our meetings to hopefully empower people to make informed decisions on the key aspects of osteoporosis
