PAMS Support Group 

(Positive Action for Multiple Sclerosis) 

 

 

PAMS is an informal self-help group for anyone living with Multiple Sclerosis in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, Surrey and surrounding areas.

 

 

We usually have an evening meeting once a month, a monthly weekday get-together in the cafe of a local garden centre and organise other social events and outings, such as a trip to the coast, a visit to a museum or other attractions. We look forward to being able to do so again!

 

Do get in touch by emailing pams.secretary@hotmail.co.uk opamsgroup@hotmail.co.uk
