  • shaws - the programme lasts for 3 hours, do you know what time Lorraine will be speaking?

  • Thanks cinnamon-girl

    I had no clue it was going to be THREE hours. That should be interesting. Maybe we can listen to it in pieces on i-player? I believe it starts at 9 a.m. maybe it has other people on it too giving their experiences.

  • I fancy a lazy day so will be tuned in!!

  • O.K. your the First Reporter to give your viewpoint. :)

  • lol

  •'s 1 HR 7 mins into the broadcast if you haven't already found it!

  • 10.00 am is the time so tune in then.

  • I felt Lorraine did well to put her points across although there were obviously time constraints. Other non-thyroid speakers spoke for longer describing their quite different situations. What I really wanted to hear was the percentage of thyroid sufferers who do not do well on Thyroxine and have been failed by the NHS.

  • Thanks. I did tune in and we were lucky, I think, that Lorraine had the first go. I have now sent an email as well and we could all do so if we wished.

    I think the second person who spoke about her 'thyroid' as well as her other conditions is one of our more 'famous' members.

  • Where did you send an e-mail to shaws?

    Yes, I guessed who that member was and she did well!

  • Goodness me I just can't imagine!


  • well done Mary.

  • Mary - can't believe the number of conditions you have, poor you.

  • I collect them as an interesting hobby. MaryF


  • Thanks shaws. Will get typing.

  • e-mail sent to the BBC.

  • Lorraine did really well for us all this morning, putting across points in a short and knowledgeable manner. Mary, also made a great contribution just to press the point home.

  • thank you for the link...Lorraine speaks about 1 HR 7 mins into the broadcast.
