I am from Leeds and could not find any. They say a lady in Manchester is good at the spire, but I chose to see dr skinner, worth the travel and money, never looked back, good luck in your search x


Well done for managing to get a referral to Dr Skinner. Do you mind me asking how?! I was diagnosed hypothyroid last week at the Duchy hospital in Harrogate and two GPs have now said they won't refer me to Dr Skinner because he is a virologist :( I noticed you are local. Any help greatly appreciated x


Bella, I was told to try an endo at Hull Royal Infirmary, by w3ndy on this site, maybe admin can help you
