My GP wants to refer me to an endo department, as I have been promised T3 (when that is going to materialise is another matter). I am not happy with my nearest NHS hospital, where I was given rubbish treatment last year. I live on the Wirral. Has anyone had any experience of either the Royal Liverpool or Countess of Chester? I understand that we can now choose which hospital we are treated at. Is this true and how would I find out which hospitals I can choose from?
