The first joint Muscular Dystrophy Campaign and Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Family Information Day was held yesterday and proved a great success with families from across the region coming together and picking up vital information about local and national services.
Other sessions were held on Trailblazers and the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign's Advocacy Ambassadors project. Both groups shared news on their activities and the support that is available to people with neuromuscular conditions.
Muscular Dystrophy Campaign Neuromuscular Outreach Manager, Bobby Ancil said:
It was a very useful day and it was great to have the chance to speak to so many people about the support that is available to families. Events like this give people the opportunity to share their knowledge with each other and to pass on what they know about local facilities. As we always say, people with neuromuscular conditions and their families are often the real experts on local services and facilities and today was a great chance for people to inform other families about what is available.
