I have been diagnosed with possible Lyme disease , and my GP, being concerned, requested blood tests including inflamatory ESR markers, along with TSH, and other tests to determine if this is the case.. I 'phoned to ask if I could come and collect a copy for my records, to be told all is "normal" - which (I know from past experience is NOT always the case - especially with TSH !) I was then told there would be a charge of £30 for a copy - which I think is a disgrace as a single copy would cost them 5p - maximum! Can they charge like this?
