Our Local Groups offer amazing support to everyone affected by PSP & CBD however, the group meetings regularly host people at different stages of their disease progression and for some newly diagnosed people this can be quite daunting.
As a result, we have decided to trial Zoom meetings for people who have received a diagnosis of PSP or CBD within the last six months. We know from feedback how important it is for people to meet others who are experiencing the same feelings and emotions following diagnosis and talk through the support and information available to them.
The meetings for newly diagnosed people, will take place on the last Wednesday of each month with the first meeting taking place on 28 October at 11am
A healthcare professional will help support each meeting, speakers taking part include:
Wednesday 28 October Jade Donnelly – Specialist Physiotherapist & APS Coordinator
Wednesday 25 November Dr Wendy Edwards – PSPA Research Manager
December – No meeting
January 27 Dr Tim Rittman – Neurologist – Addenbrookes Hospital
February 24 Julie Cummins – Occupational Therapist
March 31 Chloe Cripps – Speech and Language Therapist
April 28 Salford Royal Team – Dr Chris Kobylecki – Neurologist, Patsy Cotton – PDNS and Tim Jackson – Advanced Nurse Practitioner/Palliative Care
