Hi all and as always thanks in advance for your time.
I have decided to put in a complaint to my GP. I doubt it will do any good but the final straw has come when I find myself unable to earn a living anymore. This is thanks to their letting me get so ill and leaving me undiagnosed and untreated. Now they insult me with putting 'low mood and anxiety' on my medical certificate to claim benefits (even writing the words 'claim benefits' makes me want to go and hide somewhere!)(And you bet I have low mood and anxiety after all this time and watching everything slip away from me!!)
I was just wondering if anyone has any useful links or official references that would help/support my complaint? Or any advice on what I should put in? (or leave out)?
My main points are that they keep denying I have a thyroid issue but won't do any of the tests or procedures that would confirm it ie antibody tests and an ultrasound (which I was referred for but refused) and they won't accept the private blood tests or the diagnosis of a private specialist confirming Hashimoto's. So, no, they are never going to find evidence of Hashi's if they deny access to anything that would confirm it.
I have started Googling things and I will probably get there in the end after several lie downs, reading something 20 times before it penetrates my brain fog etc but if anyone can give me any short cuts it would be very appreciated.
