The group meetings are for anyone affected by Paget's disease, including partners and family. Group meetings are held online, using Zoom, for an hour, every two months. There is no obligation to join every meeting.
Those attending have the opportunity to speak with others affected by Paget's Disease of Bone, receive information, watch videos regarding various aspects of Paget's, make new friends and gain support from each other, as well as from our Specialist Paget's Nurse, Diana, who facilitates the meetings.

Wherever you live in the world, all members of the Paget's Association can join our Paget’s Support Network.

It is a free, mutually supportive network and is open to any Paget’s Association member wherever you live in the UK or abroad.
Many who join our Support Network make new friends. You can choose who to contact and how to communicate. You must be a member of the Paget’s Association (for membership details follow this link).
