The Bristol Royal Hospital for Children Metabolic Bone team hosted an OI family day in October in Bristol. Coreen, the BBS Support Development Officer, was delighted to be able to attend and meet up with so many OI families and have important discussions with the head of children’s service and BBS MAB member Dr Christine Burren as well as catching up in person with OT’s and Physios from the POINT team. Coreen was delighted to meet up with Dr Shane Clarke, Consultant Rheumatologist from Bristol Royal Infirmary whom the BBS hope to work more closely with in the future. The day consisted of a fun packed 4 hours of talks, play and teamwork and also a free visit to the Science Centre.
Whilst in Bristol, Coreen was keen to promote the BBS Patient Day event to be held on Sunday 26th February – registration details here. Coreen also gave an update on our fantastic new literature for hospital staff to hand out at clinics.
