Providing reliable and accessible information for patients is at the heart of all the BTF does. It was therefore a privilege to attend an awards ceremony in London on 25 September to discover that the third edition of the BTF’s booklet Thyroid Cancer: for Patients by Patients had been Highly Commended by the judging panel of the British Medical Association’s Patient Information Awards. The panel commented ‘This is an excellent resource and is likely to be of considerable value to patients facing a thyroid cancer diagnosis.’
