I would write initially to Dr Peatfield, telling him your medical history up to the present. Give details of your blood test results, with the ranges, what medication you take and dose and your clinical symptoms. If you haven't as yet been diagnosed tell him your clinical symptoms.

This link is out-of-date and I know he doesn't email. There are a couple of forms you can fill in too. It takes a long, long time usually to get through to his phone and he used to do telephone consultations on Wednesdays. He used to do clinics throughout the country so do not know if he still does so.

As he relinquished his licence with the GMC he can no longer prescribe thyroid gland medications.

You may be able to borrow the book by Diana Holmes from It tells the story of her journey which finally leads her to Dr Peatfield.
