Suite 12, One Sceptre House

Janis Hickey is Founder and Director of the British Thyroid Foundation (BTF). She was diagnosed with Graves’ disease and thyroid eye disease in 1984, an experience that led her to set up the BTF in 1991. In 1996 Miss Hickey was presented with a Yorkshire Woman of Achievement Community.
Janis Hickey completed her BA in applied modern languages from Northumbria University. She has been honoured with an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in the New Year Honours List for services to people affected by thyroid disease.
The BTF works with medical professionals, volunteers and patients to provide support and information based on reliable medical evidence and personal experience for all aspects of thyroid disease. The range of help offered includes comprehensive guides and advice circulated to patients through hospitals, GPs, the BTF website (www.btf-thyroid.org), a nationwide network of local support groups, and telephone support contacts.
