I would like to start a London based Meetup Group and wondered if anyone would be interested in this? I have suffered with IBS-D for 6 years and have never met or talked to anyone with IBS. I think meeting up would be a good way for people to share experiences, support each other and share tips on IBS management.This could be a fun, social group where we do activities together or have a more serious focus where we discuss medical issues and invite different health professionals to speak at our meetings. The location can be agreed upon and I can travel anywhere within London.Please do let me know whether you think this is a good/bad idea by hitting reply or sending me a message.All best wishes.

That sounds great. Of course I would seek out a suitable venue etc. I read somewhere that we could possibly have free use of a room at the local hospital if enough people signed up to it. Whereabouts in the UK are you based? Is it easy for you to travel to London?

That's fantastic. Is there an area of London is which particularly easy for you to get to? Do you have any ideas for how the group would be run? I was thinking of contacting all the London based GPs and asking them to let their IBS patients know about the support network once I have managed to organise something more substantial. Do you think this is a good idea?

I think this is a great idea - would be interested in meeting up anywhere in Zone 1 or 2. Let us know. It would be great to discuss symptoms and possible solutions with others.

Hello. I've just set up a support group in London Bridge. I've listed it on meetups at http://www.meetup.co...-Support-Group/ My intention is to create a positive environment where we can learn new things and support each other. Our first talk is Tuesday 26 July at 7.30pm and is on Managing IBS with Herbs that can Help. Would love to meet up with you. :)

Hi,

Also, any Londoners keen to meet, let me know because I'm planning to start a London one too.

 

Anna.
