It is with regret that we have to advise that the 68th Annual Meeting of the British Thyroid Association will NOT now take place on Friday 22nd May 2020.
This decision has been taken due to the uncertainty regarding travel plans for our attendees and speakers, and also because our chosen venue - The Wellcome Collection in London - has decided to close for the foreseeable future due to the COVID-19
