What do I get?
Details of our Anniversary Membership offer are on the forum
As a member of the HMSA in your welcome pack you will receive a membership card, a guide to living with hypermobility syndrome, a poster and few GP flyers that can be handed out. You will also receive the latest issue of our twice yearly newsletter “Hypermobility News & Views”.
Benefits of annual membership include:
Each year you will receive two newsletters - in each issue we have articles written by our Medical Advisors and other members of the association. We try to put as much information in to each issue that is up to date and relevant to keep our members informed of current progress in the world of Hypermobility Syndrome.
Access to the members only section of our website - where you will find previous issues of the newsletters including our very first one produced back in 1992 when the HMSA first started, and a downloadable personal medical file that when filled out will be beneficial to you whenever attending Medical appointments.
Participation in research trials - These are always carried out by medical professionals, and if you agree (in the section of the membership form) to us providing your details when requested you may also get the opportunity of joining in.
Access to our Local Group Network - The HMSA has a network of local groups around the Country which get together for coffee and a chat. They are also a means of finding out about the support avail able in your local area, and raising awareness. All groups are run by our members, and controlled by our Administrator. You will get the opportunity to join a group or if there isn’t one in your area you can start one up!
Above all your membership fees are helping to run the charity as we get no official funding, and are solely reliant on our members contributions and any fundraising events carried out.
You will be helping to raise awareness of this poorly understood and often overlooked condition.
