This meeting (All Ireland Support Group) was the 50th ITP Support Group meeting held by the ITP Support Association since we started these meetings in January 2019. We have come a long way since that first meeting held in a Church Hall in Devon, none of this would have been possible without the support of our volunteers and supporters. Thank you everyone.
During the Covid19 pandemic all our ITP Patient Group meetings have taken place on Zoom. This is a recording of the All-Ireland ITP Patient Meeting which took place on 23rd February 2021.
I am pleased to announce that we have a new Medical Advisor joining our long list of ITP experts, a big welcome to Dr. Gerard Crotty, Consultant Haematologist with the Health Service Executive (HSE) of Ireland. Some of you will recall Dr. Crotty supported the Association at its ITP Patient Day in Dublin earlier in the year.
FIRST IRISH PATIENT DAY IN MORE THAN A DECADE FOR RARE BLOOD CONDITION
On 13 April 2019, immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) patients from around Ireland, were welcomed to the ITP Support Association Patient Day in Dublin supported by Novartis. Chaired by Mr. Mervyn Morgan (Chief Executive of ITP Support Association), the meeting provided patients with an opportunity to discuss their experience of ITP with other patients and to learn about their disease from experts in the field.
We are pleased to announce that the ITP Patient Day held in Dublin on Saturday 13th Aptil in association with Novartis Ireland was a fantastic success. The full report from the Patient Day is availbale here >>>
