Islanders' views wanted on local Rheumatology Services

Share this page

Friday 10 May 2019

Public Health Services is holding two workshops to gather the views on services provided locally for anyone affected by Rheumatology conditions.

These will be held on Wednesday 29th May from 3.00 to 5.00 pm or 6.00 to 8.00pm and anyone affected by conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Fibromyalgia or Lupus is invited to attend. The aim is to gather views on the services currently available, identify any gaps and bring together proposals for filling those gaps.

Dr Jo Le Noury, Associate Specialist for Public Health Services is leading the project said:

"A review of acute medical services in 2017 recommended that Guernsey undertook a Needs Assessment for the Rheumatology services provided in the Bailiwick. Dr Peter Rabey, the Medical Director, has requested that Public Health perform this Needs Assessment. We are already meeting with the relevant health professionals but we would also like to talk to our service users - those who have or those who are supporting someone with Rheumatology conditions - as we would appreciate hearing their opinions and views in order to understand and map our current provision. 

However for anyone who can't attend the workshops but who would like to give their views, please do get in touch and I would be very happy to talk to you at a more convenient time."

Participants need to book their place on one of the two workshops by contacting linda.osborne@gov.gg or telephone 707438 and stating which workshop they would like to attend.

For any other queries of for further information contact Public Health Services tel 707311 or email healthy.living@gov.gg
