Moyra, Gill and the C. A. T. S. Team wish to thank all of the members of Health Unlocked who have so far supported our petition. We are very pleased and spurred on in our cause by the recent decision of the Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group who have agreed to patients, who have a clinical need for T3, to be prescribed this on the NHS (via a free prescription).
This is a massive step forward in Thyroid treatment and will allow this group of patients to gain a better quality of life. (This was impossible when these patients were being treated on T4 mono therapy).
We would like to hear if any other Clinical Commissioning Groups nationally have agreed to these measures and if you are a thyroid patient who is affected by this ruling we would like to hear from you.
We think our petition has had an impact on this new decision, but also feel that improvements can be still be made not just in T3 treatments but of Thyroid treatments in general. Our petition will continue so if you have not signed it yet, please can you consider doing so.
Many Thanks, Moyra.
