About the UK ITP Forum

The UK ITP forum is a working group of health care professionals with an interest in the care of patients with immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). The forum was established in 2011 at a meeting organised by Shirley Watson, Chief Executive of the ITP Support Association and members have been meeting regularly since then.

The objectives and aims of the forum are:

  • To improve care and outcomes for patients with immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) in the UK
  • To provide a forum for the interaction of UK healthcare professionals with an interest in ITP
  • To develop a network of specialist centres able to provide high quality care and tertiary review
  • To advance the education of health care professionals and the general public in all aspects of the disease.
  • To promote best practice and raise awareness of developments in translational research
  • To encourage collaborative research and trial recruitment into ITP studies
