Welcome to the British Thyroid Association


The British Thyroid Association is committed to promoting research and interest in the field of thyroidology and to the enhancement of clinical care to patients with thyroid disorders.


A non-profit making Learned Society, membership of the BTA is open to professionals in the UK who manage patients with thyroid disease and/or are researching into the thyroid and its disease in humans.


All medical professionals (including trainees and students); scientists, nurses, and other allied health professionals are welcome to join the BTA. You will require nomination by an existing BTA member and the cost is £30 per year
