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 restricted to professional clinical specialist doctors, retired consultants, academics, scientists, trainees, nurses and medical students in the UK who manage patients with thyroid disease and/or are researching into the thyroid and its disease in humans.


If you are working in this area we would encourage you to take out membership as this will provide fresh ideas, inspiration and new knowledge via your peers. It also offers several benefits including:


  • The opportunity to attend scientific meetings on the thyroid and thyroid disease
  • The chance to share your abstract at our annual meeting each May and its subsequent publication in Thyroid Research*
  • The opportunity to submit a blog post aimed at patients
  • Discounted registration fees for BTA and BES conferences
  • A twice yearly newsletter which keeps you in touch with thyroid related issues 
  • Discounted membership of the BTF


We are currently seeking an assistant treasurer and new members for our executive committee. If you are interested, please contact Dr Carla Moran [email protected] for details.



The COVID-19 pandemic presents significant challenges to us all. The following statements regarding management of thyroid disease have been formulated to provide clinical advice to medical colleagues during this time:
