Welcome to the newly renamed North East London Osteoporosis Support Group

In consultation with the Society’s head office we have changed the name as we feel it better reflects the area this group covers.

Also welcome to the newly renamed Royal Osteoporosis Society. 

In May 2018, new Government legislation commonly known as GDPR required that we seek written consent from existing and new Members of the group by way of a Consent Form. Existing Members (those who consented in 2018) will be sent a consent form together with this Programme for 2019 and a covering letter. 

This may sound confusing but we can explain it to you when you come along to a meeting.

If you are an existing Members who consented in 2018, please note our new contact details at the back of the  programme.

We hope to see new and existing members at our meetings this year.

Best wishes from the North East London Osteoporosis Support Group Committee

Tricia, Sheila, Marilyn, Jill, Pam and June.
