PMR-GCA Scotland

Support for Polymyalgia and Giant Cell Arteritis Sufferers in Scotland

We provide support to sufferers from PMR and GCA within Scotland. We run a Helpline, Support Groups, provide information packs and a regular newsletter to patients, families and friends.

Support

As many of our members have compromised immune systems, most Group meetings are in abeyance. Latest information is shown in the Group & Meeting Dates section of this page.

Members should feel free to call the Helpline if feeling worried or lonely even if it is just for a chat.
