Of course, there has to be some opposition, although I think this doctor believes that it will put a strain on Endocrinology if every person is to consult an Endcrinologist first re T3 being prescribed,
But Simon Pearce, professor of endocrinology at Newcastle University and member of the Society for Endocrinology, said the decision was "preposterous".
He added: "Kicking liothyronine to secondary care isn't going to solve the problem.
"During 2016 there were 75,000 prescriptions for liothyronine in England. Assuming a prescription lasts for one month, that amounts to about 6,000 patients. Assuming 50% of them will complain and request referral to secondary care, that's an extra 3,000 new outpatient appointments.
"Assuming each endocrinologist sees around 300 new appointments each year, then you need 10 new endocrinologists. Where are they coming from and who is paying for this?"
