Working together for better pituitary care
We’re committed to supporting you in your care and treatment of the pituitary community. We have a range of resources designed to provide additional support for your patients.
Our support services for patients include:
Endocrine Nurse helpline – Our specialist endocrine nurses can provide medical advice to patients on their specific condition.
Information and Support Helpline – Our volunteers and staff run helpline provides patients the opportunity to speak to others with pituitary conditions.
Telephone Buddy – This service provides one to one support with someone who has a similar or the same diagnosis as your patient.
Support Groups – We have a number of volunteer-led support groups across the UK, that host meetings with endocrinologists and peer support for patients.
Resource Booklets – We provide resource booklets with a range of information on different conditions and resources to educate and empower patients.
Events – We hold regular online events with endocrinologists on specific conditions/topics. These give people the opportunity to hear from professionals and ask questions.
Clinic resource packs – We can provide resource packs with a number of our information booklets, as well as past editions of our Pituitary Life magazine, to keep at your endocrine clinics.
