I had an opportunity to skim through the report about the survey on how Hypothyroid patients are treated. Big thank you to all those who worked so hard to bring it to fruition. I did complete the survey and it is good to see the feedback and also depressing to read about the lack of knowledge among medics, post code lottery for funding of treatment other than levothyroxine and also to read how often thyroidies have to resort to their own testing/medication. So much for NHS being available to everyone!!
I will be writing to my MP about treatment for thyroid patients and hope that we manage to get an "early day motion" in Parliament.
Thanks again to everyone involved in trying to increase awareness of the poor health care thyroid patients have to put up with.
