On behalf of Prof. Michael O’Reilly
The Society for Endocrinology has initiated a steering group to establish the current CAH service provision in the UK and Ireland. A study was undertaken 20 years ago to research clinical practice in congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), which demonstrated a suboptimal health status in adults with CAH. As a consequence, many clinical centres changed their approach to patients with CAH. Anecdotal evidence suggests that a number of different approaches to various aspects of care in CAH exist. To explore this further, we would be grateful if you could complete and also disseminate this survey. This will allow us to gain broad overview on the approach to CAH patients and clinical service provision. The survey takes 10 minutes to complete. The survey results will also inform a future prospective study.

We express our gratitude to Professor Peter Smyth, past-President of the society, for sending a copy of the programme of the 1996 IES/ BES meeting held in Dublin, which incorporated a “Graves’ 200 International Celebratory Thyroid Meeting”. We are clearly overdue another occasion to mark the life and times of Robert Graves, and the disease that bears his name, perhaps the best known eponymous condition in medicine.
