Like joesmum in her recent post, I've just heard that it's likely that my T3 is going to be stopped due to cost.
Can anyone advise on how to buy it? I am sure I will be able to get a prescription from my GP. Heloise mentioned it should only cost about 10 dollars a month. Is it possible to get it for that price?
Also, why is the NHS is paying so highly for it? I remember reading something years ago about how the NHS was paying something crazy like £20 for a loaf of gluten-free bread. I just looked it up and it was found this from a few years ago:
Newsnight contacted one of the leading manufacturers of gluten-free food, Juvela. They blamed wholesalers for adding "extra charges, sometimes adding a £20 handling charge to a £3 loaf".
This is questioned by the British Association of Pharmaceutical Wholesalers, which represents some of the biggest companies.
They told us they would be "keen to investigate any relevant cases of alleged poor standards or distribution practice."
If the NHS can end up paying £23 for a loaf of bread, then it would be interesting to know more about this T3 pricing and whether there is something wrong in their system. It might help our argument for being prescribed T3.
