About Us

TTPNetwork is a registered charity based in the UK.  

What we do

TTPNetwork is the UK's primary patient support group for patients diagnosed with Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP).

We provide advocacy, information and support for patients and their families, and we offer support to health care professionals.

We are UK based and our support is for those in the UK and Ireland, but our reach is far wider.

We are a key voice in the public health sector and regularly work with other stakeholders to improve knowledge and services for TTP patients.

We are committed to ensuring patients with TTP receive the best care available to them and the peer support they require to help understand and live with their diagnosis.



Peer Support

Our History

TTPNetwork was established as a not-for-profit in May 1998 by a patient who had been diagnosed with TTP and who at that time had experienced an initial episode and one relapse.
In the early years TTPNetwork sent paper newsletters and ran an online discussion forum.
Patients and their families kindly donated stamps, paper and envelopes to help the small following of patients with TTP and their families to receive news and information.
A website was later developed and this allowed information to reach a wider audience. Facebook also became a useful tool for keeping in touch with patients.
TTPNetwork was a key stakeholder in the development of the National TTP Service Specification and the NHS England commissioning of TTP Specialist Centres.
In 2021 TTPNetwork became a registered Charity and work to support patients continues.
