British Thyroid Foundation London Support Group Meeting 26th November

Dear all

I see via Twitter that the British Thyroid Foundation London Support Group is meeting on 26th November. I've not been to one of these meetings as I have just started following them on Twitter but thought this might be useful news to others.


26 November 2016 10am to 1pm

Crown Court Church, Russell Street, Covent Garden, London WC2B 5EZ

This will be a support group meeting. In order to continue the group needs more volunteers to help run it - if anyone is interested in helping please email

  • Mazzhak,

    I think the BTF are as useful as a chocolate fireguard. They arrogantly claim to represent thyroid patients yet offer no help at all to patients who are unable to tolerate Levothyroxine and simply act as a mouthpiece of the BTA parroting the BTA's view that Levothyroxine is the 'preferred' therapy for hypothyroidism.

  • Hi Clutter

    After I posted this I saw some comments about BTF. Feel free to remove my post!

  • Mazzahk,

    No need for that, I was expressing a personal view not that of TUK. There may be members who would like to attend the BTF meeting.

  • Clutter I think the majority of us on this site feel the same as you about BTF. When I joined this group many years ago, all it consisted of was people moaning about their problems and no help given at all. Unlike this very helpful site and TUK especially.

  • I went to a few meetings several years ago and it hadn't changed then.

  • Their support consists of levothyroxine only and there is no changing their minds.

  • Sounds like a challenge!
