We welcome you again and look forward to sharing our events in 2018.

2017 was a very exciting time for us when we had the introduction of two new Services, which will be of great support to our members. There is now a new DXA Scanner based in the Station Plaza and a new Fracture Liaison Service running at The Conquest Hospital. The Team is pleased to have been involved in the discussion processes and we have established good working relationships with all concerned. Also new, are the Hydro Pool sessions at the Conquest Hospital, which are proving very popular.

After three years Margit has decided to step down as Chair. We are all very grateful to Margit for her support and wish her well in her retirement; no doubt we will see her at some meetings.

We are delighted to welcome Dr Edward Henderson, whom some of you will know, as our new Chair and Dr Binodh, who will be joining the team as our new Medical Advisor. Dr Binodh, GP at Little Common Surgery and is Hastings and Rother CCG lead for Diabetes and Musculoskeletal Conditions.

We shall continue with our Fundraising and Awareness Days, looking for ways to develop partnerships with others, such as doctors’ surgeries and Care Homes, to make more people aware of what we can offer as a local support group. If you can help the team in any way to continue to raise our profile, then please let us know. Being a Team member is fun and not onerous!

With best wishes to you all.
