Information events


This is an example of one of our Information Events

Our information events are held regularly with professional and informative speakers at The Pavilion, Open University, Milton Keynes, MK7 6AA. See the Find us page for directions. These events are held each March, June, and October.


They provide an opportunity to meet with others who have a thyroid condition. We always have professional speakers with a health related background. They are usually drawn from the local hospital and community health services.



Meetings begin with registration and coffee at 10:30 followed by the guest speaker. We always aim to finish by 13:00.


A voluntary donation of £2.00 is requested to cover the cost of room hire.
