I have just been to my Doctor who has, at last, suggested a referral to an endocrinologist. The problem is that to see a specialist re thyroid on the NHS in my area is at least a 2 to 3 month wait, whereas I could see a private one tomorrow. However, the cost of the private one is £280 initially and £180 afterwards. My doctor has agreed to do any blood tests on the NHS, but how would going private affect things like prescriptions? Can anyone help please?
