Community Neurological Nurse

We really appreciated Christina Line taking time to attend the meeting, getting to know members and explaining how she is able to offer assistance to TN sufferers at home with counseling, support and information.  It was asked if it was possible to access the Community Nurse services without having to go through the process of being assessed by HACC. Christine said if it was just counseling and information they could just call or email Christine for assistance at any time. RN

TN Survey

We benefit enormously from research done by TNA in the US. They are conducting a survey which deals with the many aspects of TN and its treatments and we decided it best to let members know how to access the form or send it out with the newsletter. We feel it is important for us to take part in this survey and support and assist with any research TNA are doing. Please try and complete the survey and send it to TNA or The Support Group will forward it on. You can download the survey from TN USA by clicking here.
