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 Support Line, Support Groups, provide information packs and a regular newsletter to patients, families and friends.
PMR-GCA Scotland (approved by Helplines Partnership) has a Support Line on 0300 777 5090 (same prices as an 01 or 02 number). Our volunteers have received skills training from Helplines Partnership.
We have 5 volunteers who take it in turns to cover the line.
If the volunteer is not available when you call, please leave a message and a contact number and they will return your call. We will not ring you back if you don't leave a message.
