Just in case anyone wasn't aware but if you have an NHS Exemption certificate which you can have with Thyroid disease you can claim back reasonable travel costs to and from hospital.
My car has broken down and I'm at hospital for appointments every 2 weeks. So I will need to get a taxi which will cost me £12 each way. I checked and if I keep a receipt and go to the hospitals General Office or Patient Affairs Office you can claim a refund.
I know many of us are sick and maybe even on a low income or benefits so thought I'd share this info
