Thank you for everyone's support here on the forum, including the Administrators.
Just for info, I was told by nhs endo in July 2018 to go to a private endo for a private prescription for T3. I did this but it was a waste of money, I should have put my money down the drain, endo said I had wrong diagnosis & asked me to come off medication so he can test bloods in 3 months time to which I refused. After the whole horrendous experience with private endo I had my prescription & I am so much better on t3, althgh feel a slight increase in dosage will help.
I need a repeat prescription but private endo was on holiday. He has returned & I received a letter today advising there have been discussions over best practice & he cannot provide a private prescription unless I see him privately. Apparently it is not reasonable for patients to receive care from nhs endo while receiving treatment (t3 prescriptions) from private endo. I checked & asked the secretary & the endo about this before I made an appointment.
I have ordered my own T3 from overseas today as like many I cannot afford to see a private endocrinologist & pay their inflated fees.
I see the nhs endo at the end of January & i'm wondering what they will at now I'm taking t3.
Rip off Britain comes to mind. Along with care for only those who can afford it!
One things for sure, I will not stop taking t3.
Thanks for listening, moan over, although so angry when I got the letter!!
