30 Years – What the ITPSA means to you? – Let us know.

2025 will see the UK and Ireland ITP Support Association celebrate its 30 year anniversary.
The Association, formed in 1995 by Shirley Watson MBE, was the first ITP (Immune Thrombocytopenia) Patient Support Organisation in the World, now as we look to our 30th Year there are more than 30 such ITP patient organisations and groups around the world working together as part of the ITP International Alliance for the benefit of patients.
In the build up to 2025 we are asking our members and friends to send us a few words about what the ITP Support Association means to them, you may be a patient, parent, carer, healthcare professional or a fundraiser, please let us know. Please send to
We will collate the reply’s and use them in the months ahead and during our 30th year celebration.
