Salisbury Fibromyalgia Café
We have recently set up a Fibromyalgia Café at our practice in Salisbury, Wiltshire which is launching on April 27th. This is going to run on the 4th Thursday of every month from 1pm – 2:30pm and will not just be open to our patients.
The main aim of the group is to provide peer support to attendees so it is going to be very informal, just somewhere people can go to chat and make friends – we call it a café as everyone is provided with free tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits and it takes place in the onsite café at the practice. The man that is going to facilitate the group is living with fibromyalgia himself and is really excited to set up a group and also arrange other meetings and activities with the members throughout the month (if they like).
