Kent & Medway Haematology Support Group

The Kent & Medway Haematology Support Group has been set up by Dr Lalita Banerjee and is for patients and family members from Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells, Medway, Swale, Thanet, Gravesend and the surrounding areas.

We are a friendly group who meet regularly throughout the year to share their experiences of myeloma, hear from guest speakers about various aspects of living and coping with everything myeloma brings. The group is open to anyone affected by myeloma AL amyloidosis, leukaemia and lymphoma.
