Thyroid Cancer Support West was set up as a patient led support group in 2015 with help from a grant given by Macmillan Cancer Support. 

The aims of the group are :

  • To provide support for anyone affected by thyroid cancer in the West of England. Support is through meetings and by email and we are developing a "buddy" system.

  • Working towards patients receiving better information and support at diagnosis.

  • Raising awareness of thyroid cancer. 

In 2017 we formed a committee, all of whom work on a voluntary basis and have had experience of thyroid cancer and later that year we became a registered charity. We are thrilled that Dr Matthew Beasley, Consultant Oncologist at Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre has agreed to be our Honorary President.

Please feel free to take a look around our site, and please do get in contact if you would like to talk to someone or even offer your support and experience to others.

Registered charity no 1174124.
