About us


The 2021 meetings will continue to take place virtually via Zoom, from 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm on the 2nd Monday of each month. We hope it won't be too long before we can resume face to face meetings at the Charing Cross Hospital, ground floor boardroom, South Wing. 

Everyone is welcome–please feel free to bring along a family member, friend or carer. There is no charge to members or visitors and no obligation to return.
