December Meeting with NHS and AFME @ Midsteeple, Dumfries
Dec 7 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Our usual Network get-together will take place from 1pm.  This will be informal.  Feel free to bring along a snack or light lunch.

From 2pm Action for M.E. are inviting professionals working in health and social care to a roundtable meeting examining the current care pathway for people with M.E. in Dumfries and Galloway.  This follows on from the focus group held in July to better understand the experiences and priorities of people living with this debilitating and often hidden illness. The focus of this conversation will be on understanding what matters to people locally, sharing examples of good practice, increasing knowledge and understanding of the illness, and identifying practical opportunities to enhance services and support.

You are warmly invited to join us, to share your knowledge and experience, and work with us to lead positive change.  Please get in touch with Theresa for further information – Theresa@actionforme.org.uk – by 29th Nov.

Please indicate your intention to attend the round table consultation wit her Theresa or by emailing the Network a time Admin@dgmefm.org.uk.  Places will be limited due to the size of the venue as we are expecting 6 from the NHS and Social care, plus Avril and Theresa from AFME.

You are welcome to attend either, or both of, the 1-2pm or the 2pm to 4pm sessions.

Tea and coffee will be provided.  The first floor meeting room of the Midsteeple is accessible.  Press and hold the lift button to call the lift and move between floors.  Toilet facilities are on the ground floor.

Christmas Lunch – Saturday 16th December 2017 @ Solway Gate
Dec 16 @ 1:00 pm

Hello all

This year we are again meeting for a Christmas lunch.

  • The date/time is: Saturday 16th December from 1pm.
  • It will be held at: Solway Gate, Euroroute, Annan Rd, Dumfries, DG1 3JX.

Click here for the link to the menu.

You can choose from either a 2 course meal for £13.49 (kids £6.99) or a 3 course meal for £16.49.  We have to all choose from this Christmas menu, as their normal menu doesn’t apply for Christmas bookings.  Alex is happy to answer any questions as well and if you have any dietary requirements, please also let him know. We all pay for our own food on the day and no deposits are required.

If you want to join us, please let us know by Saturday 9th December the latest and also send your food order before that date to our Vice Chairman Alex at: Alex@dgmefm.org.uk.  If you need a lift please let us know and we will find a way to accommodate you! 🙂

We hope you will all be able to join us for a nice Christmas meal together 🙂

Alex – DGMEFM Network Vice Chairman
