Upcoming Support Group Sessions
|Date and Time||Details||Place||Topic|
|Thursday 26th September 2019 8:00pm - 10:00pm||Information evening with an all female panel of consultants & physicians.||Belfast City Hospital, Wing E, Gynae Outpatients Dept||Coffee evening, Guest speaker|
Our group meets in Belfast and was the first Endometriosis Support Group in NI.
The group meets on the last Thursday of every month (except July, August & December) at 8pm in Belfast City Hospital, Wing E, Outpatients. We stay in touch by Facebook & email during summer months & arrange a coffee evening to ensure that we are still available to offer support when needed.
Due to the firm relationships that the group founder Hannah Jaminson has built over the years, we regularly have visits & talks from our local Consultant Gynaecologists, Endo Nurse and Patient Client Council. Whilst we always offer time and space for general chats, sharing & blowing off steam (if need be!), a listening ear and encouragment for women to be their best advocate, we also try to offer information which may benefit individuals. Q&A sessions with Endo Specialising Gynaecologists give them an idea of what they should expect and ask for regarding the best available treatment options. We have also had an anaethesiologist attend a meeting to offer informtion on how the Pain Clinic can help with pain management.
Every group meeting starts at 8pm and we finish with a light supper & refreshments at 9.30pm.
