I had a very interesting chat with a thyroid specialist at the hospital where i work the other day i told him i had a private scan and he said why pay when it should have been done by the NHS. i told him the gp said i wouldnt need one and the endo i saw at a private hospital also refused even though i was going to pay. i finally found a clinic 21 miles away who were prepared to do the scan without question apart from asking what thyroid problems i had. i have a hospital appt coming up in october (second opinion arranged by PALS) he said at the very least i should be offered a scan.
