thanks for this as I sent mine on the 10th therefore have forwarded the original to this new person :)


I have re sent my letter written recently, and to the new person. MF x


I'd like to send an email but don't know how to word it ... Any advice greatly appreciated :-)


Hi Jonesey,

I think all you have to say in a nut shell is about your experience of thyroid care with Dr Skinner compared to other doctors, and how much Dr S has improved your condition, and how without him you would still be very ill. That's a sort of summary of what I've written anyway :) so hope this helps! I basically said something along the lines of : I am writing regarding Dr S's IOP on Friday. He saved me. Other doctors are useless. Without Dr S I would be very ill. Please allow him to continue practising without restriction. It's really important.

Although I hope others will comment on what they have written too, as I hope I have written the right sort of thing! xx


Although that's really summarised lol


Where can I read about Dr Skinner's case. I dont know about it I'm afraid. I can only presume from I've read that he has been a great help to a lot of thyroid problem sufferers. Thanks.


Hi I'm not a patient of his, I would still like to support him. He is at least trying to help us where the BMW GMC, is failing because of the emphasis on bloods not symptoms. Can I still write in support and what can I write any help please.


I sent an e-mail of support this morning. I hope it helps :-)


Is there an update anywhere on how the hearing went?


There was a blog from Muffy to say that he can still carry on with existing conditions. I can't get the blog to load for some reason - you could drop Muffy a message for more details..




Thanks Louise.
