PATIENTS, families, carers and health professionals are invited to attend a meeting in Dorchester to discus rheumatoid arthritis.

The National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) and the rheumatology team at Dorset County Hospital have organised the meeting and discussion at Dorchester Baptist Church in Bridport Road from 6.30pm on Wednesday, October 3.

There will be an opportunity to find out more about how to manage the condition.

Chief executive and founder of the NRAS Alisa Bosworth said: “This event will provide valuable information on how to make effective use of local care services that are available.

“It is also an opportunity for rheumatoid arthritis patients to meet others with the same condition and share experiences.”
