Description

It is estimated that there are approximately 70,000 people with a pituitary condition in the United Kingdom. To meet the need for information and support The Pituitary Foundation was set up in 1994 and was subsequently registered as a charity in September 1996.

The Pituitary Foundation is a national support and information organisation for pituitary patients, their families, friends and carers. We are the UK's leading charity providing support to people affected by disorders of the pituitary gland such as Acromegaly, Cushing's, Prolactinoma, Diabetes Insipidus and Hypopituitarism.

The Pituitary Foundation operates throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland. We are a membership organisation and have in the region of 2,300 subscribed members. We are a relatively small charity, with ten members of staff and supporting our work we have a team of 100 volunteers across the country.

We can offer a listening ear, information and general advice to assist you in being your own advocate. We can also signpost you to relevant services who can offer further information and support.
