We plan to explore the reasons why so many people experience side effects and we believe we can help in preventing some of these occurring. The subject content of this meeting is for everyone on cortisol replacement therapy, no matter what the cause. It covers both adult and children, however please note that due to the venue layout unfortunately we are unable to accommodate children under 10 years. There will be no charge to attend this meeting, so come along for a great afternoon, meet others, share ideas and for all who have asked, there will be good coverage on using hydrocortisone infusion via the pump method. Seats are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. To book please send an e-mail giving the names of those who you would like to bring along and the condition that you are associated with. Programme maybe subject to change.
