Coffee morning in Kent? and ongoing trials

We have a brilliant initiative from a member, Jan Clifton, who would like to meet others with Dupuytren or Ledderhose. She has set aside a morning for this. here are the details:
 If you are interested please reply and I will message you her email.
Coffee morning for Dupuytren/Ledderhose support group
Friday 20th October 10.30am
At Coffee Republic, Bluewater Shopping Centre, Kent
(Unit OU58, Upper Thames Walk between M&S and House of Fraser)
Free parking. Plenty store guides.
Bluewater is off the M25 near Dartford Tunnel. Buses go right into the centre and from Dartford railway station you can get a fast track bus.
On another note the Charity Commission wants a lot more information and changes, so that is an ongoing project. I will update once I know more!
The DISC trial is now starting in Derby, comparing the longer term results of collagenase and fasciectomy surgery for patients with contracture. More information here.
The RIDD trial for early Dupuytren's (nodule stage) is expanding and will soon accept patients not only in Oxford but also in Edinburgh.
Please check out these trials!
