New BTF thyroid cancer booklet

| General News



The third edition of the British Thyroid Foundation (BTF)’s valuable and successful thyroid cancer booklet is now available. Designed to help patients facing a diagnosis of thyroid cancer, the booklet Thyroid Cancer: For Patients, By Patients is largely written and reviewed by patients who’ve experienced a diagnosis of thyroid cancer.

It is endorsed by the British Thyroid Association (BTA), British Association of Endocrine and Thyroid Surgeons, Association of Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Disorders (AMEND), Butterfly Thyroid Cancer Trust, Thyroid Cancer Support Group Wales, Hypopara UK and the Caledonian Society for Endocrinology and Diabetes.

“The BTA is delighted to endorse the updated BTF patient support booklet for thyroid cancer. It is evident that there is a great demand for clear and accessible information for patients with thyroid cancer, on what can be a complex pathway through many specialities. As health professionals, it is our duty to provide consistency to patients and their families. This booklet provides the recommended highest quality standards and support that health professionals should be delivering to their patients with thyroid cancer.”

Mark Vanderpump, BTA President

“A superb comprehensive go-to resource for thyroid cancer patients.”

Jo Grey, CEO and Chair of Trustee Board, AMEND
