Hi, I was diagnosed with Graves earlier this summer and because I'd never heard of it before and because there was a significant wait time to see an endo, decided to go privately till things were a bit clearer. Saw the endo who wanted blood tests. I went to my doc who charged £26.50 for T3, T4 and TSH tests. Then saw the endo again who wanted some more up to date tests for T3,T4 and TSH. As he's based at the Nuffield, he thought it might be easier to have them done there. I had them done today, went to pay and they wanted £130 - just for the test! I nearly fell off my chair. I asked them if they'd made a mistake but they were adamant it was the correct charge. The endo doesn't even charge that for a consultation!! Perhaps I'm being naive but I think it's quite a rip off. Is this a normal charge?
