Any good endos on the south coast?

Hello all. I was on a little while ago asking if anyone else was breathless. It turns out I'm not the only one!

I went to Dr Skinner in Birmingham a few years ago, and he put me on Erfa and I improved a great deal. The problem is, since he passed away, I havn't had any blood works done. The reason is, I'm scared of being refered to one of the endos that believe that all we need is thyroxine! My GP is happy to prescribe me Erfa, so I've pretty much been regulating myself. But now I don't actually know if I'm taking too much or not enough! I take 4 grains. I had my throid removed 6 years ago.

I actually live in Eastbourne. Can anyone recomend an endo, either private or NHS?

Missmolly55, If your GP is prescribing Erfa s/he should also order annual thyroid bloods to monitor you. You can order private thyroid tests from Blue Horizon and Genova if you don't wish your GP to do the tests or your GP can't/won't order FT3 tests via

Email for a list of endos recommended by members. You'll need to check with individual endos whether or not they prescribe Erfa.
