Regional Local Support Group Meetings - North East

We have started running Regional Local Support Group (LSG) meetings via Zoom, with the aim of bringing multiple groups in the area together. Attendees will hear the latest updates from The Pituitary Foundation, find out about the activities of the local groups from the Area Coordinators, and engage in peer support discussions.

The work of our LSGs is vital as they allow pituitary patients to gain the support they need in, or close to, the area they live and have treatment. Group meetings allow patients to gain support from fellow patients in a welcoming and sociable setting within their locality. Health and safety measures are currently being dicussed for when our face-to-face meetings can resume very soon.

Our new Regional Zoom LSG meetings are specifically for patients/families in the areas that we are advertising, so please note, if you don’t live within these areas, the meetings won’t be appropriate for you.  We’ll be covering a number of regions over the next months, so do watch out for your region’s meeting being advertised.

The first meeting will be on Tuesday 6th July at 6.30pm - 8.00pm, and is for those living in the following areas:

  • Newcastle
  • York
  • Sheffield
  • Hull

The Foundation would love to see as many of you there as possible, so please do consider joining. If you live in the above areas then please contact sian@pituitary.org.uk for information on how to join the meeting via Zoom.
