Medical Committee

We are indebted to our volunteer Medical Committee, who give their time and expertise to guide and inform the charity’s work on all medical matters.

Committee members are professionals in their field and they have various specialisms in, or related to, endocrine and pituitary care. They volunteer their time to support us to provide the best advice to our patients and help with various tasks such as writing and approving publications, speaking at conferences and responding to patient queries.
