The British Thyroid Foundation (BTF) is a registered charity, launched in 1992. The principle aims of the BTF are to provide the sufferer and the medical profession with information, to establish regional support groups, and to raise funds for research.
The Foundation's work on behalf of the thyroid sufferer is carried out by three staff and volunteers, some of whom themselves have thyroid problems, but who have made a steady recovery and now wish to be actively involved in helping others. Some volunteers are from the medical or other professions and they act as advisers. Members also support the Foundation in many different ways - by contributing newsletter articles, distributing posters, raising funds, setting up a local support group, or simply by becoming a member. BTF members receive the following:
- 3 newsletters per year which include: articles by medical professionals on various aspects of thyroid disease, case histories, information on local group activities, letters and comments from members.
- A selection of information pamphlets.
- Details about thyroid books.
- Access to a medical advisory service.
