Are They Medically Trained/Qualified?
No - no member of the Admin team has any formal medical training or any medical qualifications.
What do they do?
First and foremost, the role of the Admin Team is to ensure that the group is a safe environment for all members. Whether this is controlling spam and trolls, mediating disagreements, investigating Reports or ensuring that the Posting Guidelines are followed, this is the main focus of the Admin Team.
In addition to this main role, you may also find the Admin Team helping out by answering queries and posting interesting and informative posts.
Having the Admin badge does not mean that they are the most knowledgeable people on the group. There are a multitude of people who are extremely well informed and who regularly help other members.
Are they paid?
Lyn Mynott and Louise Roberts are the only Thyroid UK employees. All the rest of the Admin Team are volunteers.
All of the Admin Team do a great job and help a lot of people and we thank them sincerely - but remember to keep an eye out for those other really helpful members too.
