People living with fibromyalgia in the Forfar area are invited to an information meeting to learn more about the condition.

The event will take place on Wednesday 5 June from 6.30pm to 8.30pm in the Lintrathen Room at Whitehills Health & Community Care Centre.

Rhona Guild, long-term conditions lead in Angus, said, “Fibromyalgia is a relatively common long-term condition, with about 5.5% of the UK population thought to be affected, yet many people living with it tell us that they have difficulty accessing reliable information and support to enable them to manage their condition.

“A panel of healthcare staff will be available at this event to provide an overview of fibromyalgia and discuss approaches to how to manage the condition. There will also be time to talk to others living with fibromyalgia over a cup of tea or coffee.”

The meeting is free to attend and is open to anyone living in Angus with fibromyalgia as well as their families and friends.

No booking is necessary, but should anyone require further information please call the Primary Care Development Team on 01307 492549 or email achppatientcourses.tayside@nhs.net.
