NATIONAL OSTEOPOROSIS  SOCIETY

l Bristol and District Branch

 

It is estimated that around 3 million people in the UK have osteoporosis.

This can lead to bones becoming fragile and breaking easily, resulting in pain and disability (one in two women and one in five men over fifty are likely to experience a fracture due to osteoporosis).

Much can be done to treat osteoporosis and prevent fractures and the Society is committed to helping people with osteoporosis live the lives they want to lead.

The Bristol Support Group  meets in the Church Hall on the first Monday of the month in March, July, September, November and December and the second Monday in May (due to the Bank Holiday on the first Monday).

Meetings are from approximately 1.45 - 3.45 pm and we generally have a speaker (often on a medical matter related to osteoporosis) followed by tea and biscuits. We also have outings and an annual Christmas lunch.

New members, male and female, are always welcome. There is an annual fee of 5.00, which includes six newsletters a year.
