National Survey of current management of patients with chronic hypoparathyroidism
Parathyroid UK and the Society for Endocrinology are supporting Professor Jeremy Turner and Dr Jian Shen Kiam (Norwich) in this important audit. It aims to give a clearer picture of current practice and hopefully inform a future management protocol. We would be enormously grateful if you (or a colleague) could complete the survey and share it far and wide we would be enormously grateful. The data collection tool is available in pdf format ( attached) or online here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/K3RTWFC

Patient experience and case studies
Our Patient Stories provide first-hand testimonies of people living with the condition, and help raise awareness about the difficulties of living with different types of hypoparathyroidism, CaSR and hyperparathyroidism. These were the first stories about the patient experience of hypoparathyroidism ever to be published.
Our ‘Living with chronic hypoparathyroidism‘ booklet presents the data of the first UK wide survey of 240 hypopara patients (see bottom of page).
