Thyroid Friends Network

In 2010 I set up a support group in London for thyroid patients which I ran until 2014 and continued to chair for a while after that. After a break I recently became involved again as the group was threatened with closure and asked for my help to keep going.

 

Having secured funding, we are now in the process of setting up a new charity to provide peer support and reliable information to people affected by thyroid disorders in London and beyond.

 

This is a project which is close to my heart. 

 

We still have a lot of work to do before we register the new charity, but we are on track with:

  • events planned through until the end of 2018
  • participation as registered stakeholders in the new NICE guidelines for thyroid disorders
  • invitations to attend and speak at other events including the World Health Innovation Summit in Carlisle 2018

If you are interested in this work you can find our more on the group's website
