AB  - OBJECTIVE: A parathyroid multidisciplinary team meeting was set up at East Sussex
      Healthcare Trust, from November 2014 to November 2015, in order to improve and
      streamline services for patients with parathyroid pathology. METHODS: Data were
      collected on all new referrals for hyperparathyroidism, and on the outcomes for
      each patient discussed at the meeting, including the number of operations and
      management outcomes. A survey was sent out to the members of the
      multidisciplinary team meeting to determine their perception of its
      effectiveness. RESULTS: Seventy-nine new referrals were discussed throughout the 
      year; 43 per cent were recommended for surgery, 41 per cent had a trial of
      conservative or medical management before re-discussion, and 16 per cent required
      further imaging. Ninety-two per cent of patients underwent an ultrasound,
      single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography or nuclear
      medicine (sestamibi) scan prior to the meeting. All ultrasound scans were
      performed by a consultant radiologist. CONCLUSION: The multidisciplinary team
      meeting has been successful, with perceived benefits for patients, improved
      imaging evaluation and efficiency of referral pathways, leading to more
      appropriate patient management.
