My name is Jean Miller and after having had PMR & GCA for 4.5 years and of searching unsuccessfully on the web and elsewhere for help, support and information, I set up Tayside PMR & GCA Support in March 2006. Since then we have had support and encouragement from many people and organisations, including the National Medical Research Foundation and Dundee Voluntary Action. We are currently the only Support Group in Scotland, but hope others will be encouraged to set up similar groups. We changed our name to PMR- GCA Scotland in May 2010. We are now recommended on the Patient UK website and also on their list for Health Professionals with the result that GPs all over the UK are referring patients to us.
