ITP National Convention
The ITP Support Association will hold our annual Patient Convention and a Medical Seminar for Health Professionals on Saturday 5th April 2014 at the Letchworth Hall Hotell. Both events will be run in conjunction with some combined sessions.
Letchworth Hall Hotel is a converted 17th century manor house close to Letchworth, the original garden city, and is just 30 minutes from London Luton airport, Cambridge & London King's Cross. The hotel has 87 modern bedrooms with air conditioning and is set in 8 acres of grounds overlooking Letchworth Golf Club. The Spa has an indoor heated pool, gym and treatment rooms. Journeys from Luton or Stansted airports to Letchworth by train take about 1.5 hours.
This Annual Convention for ITP Patients features presentations on different aspects of ITP by three leading ITP specialists, and an update on the study investigating food intolerance in ITP by a foremost expert in gastroenterology research. Patients and family members will be able to share their experiences with others in the discussion groups and social time. The question and answer forum at the end of the day offers the opportunity for patients to put their questions to the panel of speakers. Association key volunteers will be on hand throughout the day should you need any assistance.
