The Alpha-1 UK Support Group will be holding their 1st Scottish Social Gathering and Information Day on Saturday 29th March at the Discovery Point Dundee. The event commences with a buffet lunch and will be followed by a series of talks given by medical professionals. Although the agenda is not finalised at this time we are very pleased to announce that Professor MacNee and Andrew Deans have both agreed to speak at the event. The Alpha-1 Alliance will also be speaking about the launch of the campaign for a highly specialised service and access to treatment in Scotland and also providing information about how you can help and become involved.
A private guided tour of the RSS Discovery has been arranged after the afternoons talks. Please do note that the RRS Discovery is an historic ship and the nature of her construction means that full disabled access is not possible. There is a ramp that can be placed at the top of the gangway that provides access to the main deck. Access to the Bridge or the lower decks is by narrow stairs.
A dinner is being hosted in the evening which will provide an excellent opportunity to meet and chat with fellow Alpha’s. We do hope you will be able to attend and look forward to seeing you, although we would advise you to book early as places are limited.
