A great opportunity for a fine dinner at a fascinating historical venue with UK and French colleagues.  This heavily subsidised dinner is exceptional value and follows the first day of our BPNS SFNP meeting.  Don't forget to login to our website before booking if you are a member; this is necessary for associate members to unlock cheaper rates.  Ordinary members are paying the same as guest members so as not to charge more for our French guests.  French trainees should contact SFNP honorary secretary Dr Marion Masingue to request the cheaper rates available to our associate members.

New UK Charity for Peripheral Neuropathy

The BPNS wish to facilitate setup of a new charity for peripheral neuropathy in the UK.  There is no charity or association in the UK which supports people with all the many causes of peripheral neuropathy.  Only a few specific causes of neuropathy have a UK charity, such as CMT-UK, GAIN and Diabetes UK.  There is no UK charity to support idiopathic neuropathy, painful small fibre neuropathy (except general pain charities), brachial neuritis, carpal tunnel and entrapment neuropathies, chemotherapy neuropathy (except cancer charities), etc.

The chief executives of several related charities have kindly offered to give infomral advice and support: GAIN, CMT-UK and the (USA based) International Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy.  The next step is we need a small number of keen UK patients with neuropathy to do the work, ideally with relevant skills such as running a business/company/charity, accountancy, fundraising, website programming or public relations.  Volunteers would need some spare time and to be sensible organised people.  We need quality not quantity.  Interested individuals can make contact by email: info@neuropathy.org.uk.  BPNS members have been emailed with the link to the poster so they can print and put up in neurology and neurophysiology outpatient departments: https://www.bpns.org.uk/data/files/Public/NeuropathyOrgPoster.pdf
