APF Support Groups via Zoom 

Our 2023 APF support groups kicked off in February and we’re thrilled with the turnout and engagement. These Zoom sessions provided a vital platform for patients living with pituitary conditions and their families to connect, share, and support one another.

Looking ahead, we’re excited to announce that the next round of support groups will be held in February 2024, with the dates to be confirmed. To register interest in the next patient support group sessions, please email us with the support group you wish to attend:


  • Hypopituitarism Patient Support Group
  • Paediatric Parent/Carer Support Group
