Have your say on chronic hypoparathyroidism

10 Feb 2020



A national survey of management of patients with chronic hypoparathyroidism is being conducted with the support of Parathyroid UK and the Society for Endocrinology by Jeremy Turner and Vivek Sharma.

Help improve patient care by submitting data for up to five patients diagnosed with hypoparathyroidism in your institution before August 2019, and seen in your clinic within the last 2 years.

In most cases it will make sense to coordinate with your department colleagues to avoid duplication of effort. In cases where there is a defined metabolic calcium lead, it may make sense to pass this survey on to them so that they may coordinate the return from your institution.

Even if you can only complete one data return from your institution this would still be very helpful, although the more you can complete the better. Ideally these would be (up to) the last 5 sequential patients seen in your clinic but completed returns on (up to) any 5 individual cases managed in the last 2 years would also be helpful.

The data collection form can be completed electronically, then saved or scanned and returned by email to vivek.sharma@nnuh.nhs.uk.

Alternatively, you can mail hard copies to:
