ITP National Convention

The ITP Support Association will be holding a Patient Convention on Saturday 11th April at The Woodlands Conference Centre in Chorley, Lancs.

The speakers will include:-

  • Dr Jecko Thachil talking on how ITP treatment work
  • Nichola Cooper on Childhood ITP

We will be presenting the results of our recent Bone Marrow Biopsy Survey, and hope to have a talk about the Pregnancy in ITP Study (to be confirmed). Dr Bolton-Maggs will chair the Q & A session, and all the speakers will participate in the patient discussion groups.

Booking via the website is available here. Entry is by ticket only, £25 for members (and partner) or £30 for non-members.

A printable booking form is available here.

Local accomodation can be booked here.

The patient meeting at the new HQ in Bedfordshire is now planned for September, details available nearer the time.

Increased international co-operation has resulted in sharing of information, ideas and support and has led to the development of wider support being available for ITP patients. Some of the results of this co-operation arevisible on the social networks, links available here. and links to international support sites in many languages are available here.

Details of past Conventions and Medical Seminars are available here.
