I introduced myself a few weeks ago as a group leader for a support group in the South Cumbria area and wanted to highlight an issue which not only affects people in Cumbria but actually nationwide. The Government has told the NHS to save money and in turn the NHS have instructed the CCG's to withdraw prescription of the necessary drugs to balance our thyroid hormone levels. Now as it stands patients can only receive this medication if they buy it themselves. Our support group has initiated a petition through Change.org to try and raise awareness. We would appreciate your support so please take a look at the link below. Many thanks.
