The Northern Ireland Patient Support Group is for the support of all pituitary patients, relatives and carers. The group provides peer support, networking, sharing of experiences and liaising with our local pituitary unit at the Royal Victoria Hospital Belfast to optimise patient experience.

Over the last few years we have met virtually via Zoom. More recently we have commenced in person meetings and we plan to have a mix of both in the future. We tend to meet every two to three months and hopefully we will have some information sessions or medical talks at future meetings.

The group is run by Ben Loughrey, who is an endocrinology specialty trainee in Belfast. If you are interested in being kept in the loop or in joining any of our meetings please contact Ben using the contact form below.
