Well Tuesday morning I had a call from one of the receptionist at my Drs surgery. She informed me that Dr L had received a letter from Somerset CCG, the letter stated that I had lost my appeal for my continued prescription of liothyronine. The receptionist was very embarrassed to tell me Dr L could no longer perscribe me liothyronine and wanted to give me a low dose of thyroxine to trail. I can't take thyroxine was my reply even at a low dose I have tried before, the receptionist said she is not medically trained to be able to answer my questions. " so why the **** are you ringing me and not the Dr" who is medically trained to answer my questions. I'm thinking of putting an add in the local paper.
A GP IN THE SOMERSET AREA
GOOD WORKING KNOWLEDGE OF THYROID DISSORDERS AND B12 DEFICIENCY ESSENTIAL
HAS TO CARE MORE FOR PATIENTS THAN THEY DO SOMERSET CCG
MUST BE ABLE TO THINK ON THERE OWN, TEAM PLAYERS NEED NOT APPLY
