Burton-on-Trent Myeloma Support Group

Burton-on-Trent Myeloma Support Group is a small, friendly group, recently established and their monthly meetings are an opportunity to share experiences as patients, carers and family members. Chatting over a cup of tea or coffee enables the Group to support each other and develop friendships.

The Group invites guest speakers from various backgrounds to share their expertise relevant to coping and living with myeloma.

They also talk about their personal progress, share experiences and helpful practical advice, and hear about new developments in myeloma treatment. They explore and share experience of practical help available for none medical issues associated with living with myeloma.

Venue & Parking Information

Approaching the hospital entrance on Belvedere Road, instead of turning left into the main hospital, keep straight on and take the second right – Outwoods Close. There is a one way system.

Go through the barrier and turn right immediately after the building on your right. Continue on the one way system until you reach car park D. The Medical Centre is adjacent to the car park.

An Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system operates at the hospital so you will need to make a note of the time you arrived at the car park and the registration number of your car. You can then enter your registration number at one of the machines around the hospital and pay the required fee.
