Today I have received an invoice from the Gloucestershire NHS Labs for £123; payment for 7 blood tests requested by my GP. ( B12,F,TPO,FT3,FT4,RLP,TSH) These same tests had been repeatedly requested by my GP before and I have never been charged. So what has changed?
I have Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism and was severely deficient in Vit D3.
However my GP is not allowed to request Vitamin D testing from these same labs despite requests from my Endo.
Has anyone had a similar experience?
Fortunately through your help, guidance and ongoing support I have been able to take some control and use suggested supplements and monitor my own blood tests through medicheck.
Would be interested in replies as I am about to do battle on Monday. Thank you
