Welcome to the Truro Support Group information page. Truro is one of 5 areas covered by a large group collectively known as the Exeter, Plymouth, Torbay, Truro & Taunton Local Support Group.
This group currently has 128 members and rotates its meetings between 5 Hospital Endocrine centres in Exeter, Plymouth, Torbay, Truro & Taunton (each Endocrine Centre hosts 2 group meetings per annum).
All meetings are open to anyone with pituitary problems, and has no joining fee. The open invite extends out to partners, family or carers.
At our meetings you will meet fellow Pit patients in an informal gathering, listen to our Professionals, ask questions and slowly begin to comprehend the complex problems 'we' all have as individuals. You will learn how to fight your corner to get the best for your particular medical journey. Our meetings aim to start at 6pm and last for a couple of hours.
Mike Luxton is the group's area co-ordinator. To join this group simply make contact with him.
Meetings are planned for the months of :
Sep & Mar in Truro and Torbay
Oct & Apr in Plymouth
Nov & May in Exeter
All group members are notified 30 days before every meeting with a brief e/agenda, and followed up with an e/reminder a week prior to that meeting. Wherever possible any on going matters are attached to these notification emails.
