Thanks to all the folks who answered my search for Mercury Pharma. My GP was really helpful and wrote me an NHS prescription to cover me over Xmas and whilst we sort out the Exception Individual funding request. We submitted it straight away. However I have just heard back from them and quote...
"Hi Team, we have been advised that this drug is in tariff and not subject to additional funding in primary care . Please could you therefore ask Dr. xxxx to advise why the Endocrinology Cons at Addenbrookes is not prescribing this medication if it is felt to be clinically necessary? Panel will not look at this case as it stands."
I am worried about being bounced between Primary and Secondary care and the advise on who should be paying seems really unclear. Could anyone point me to documentation that clearly states who should be paying this, before I get this letter sent to the Consultant. I want to add some facts to the case before I send it.
The advice in the doc "Case Details with Clear Evidence that NHS England Guidance on Prescription of Liothyronine is not Being Followed by CCGs"
seems unclear espcially in the East of England (I am under Cambridgeshire)
Thanks again for all your help
