We are pleased to announce that Thyroid UK has been working with ITT (Improve Thyroid Health) and TPA (Thyroid Patient Advocacy) on a joint report entitled
Improving T3 Prescription in the UK – a Joint Campaign on behalf of Thyroid Patients which has been sent to Mr Simon Stevens, CEO of NHS England and Professor Sir Malcolm Grant CBE, Chair of NHS England Board.
Lyn Mynott met with the Rt Hon Lord Philip Hunt of Kings Heath PC OBE, Opposition Spokesperson on Health, Higher Education and Cabinet Office on 22nd March 2018 who has put down on the order paper a regret debate regarding the high cost of T3 and the fact that a growing number of CCGs are refusing to follow the latest guidance from NHS England.
If you know of any Lords, please do contact them and let them know about the regret debate which will hopefully happen sometime this month. Also let me have their details so that I can let Lord Hunt know.
In more good news, ITT recently met with Vince Cable, party leader of the Liberal Democrats, and he has offered to try to get a members debate on the subject of T3.
Thyroid UK and ITT have worked together on compiling a list of MPs who have been supportive to their constituents in regard to their plight and this has been sent to Vince Cable.
We now need you to help by writing to your MP sending the joint report which you can download from here. We have designed a template to make things easier which you can download from here. Delete the parts of the template that you don’t need and either send it to your MP by email or by post.

Please help as it is the perfect opportunity to stop the CCGs withdrawing T3 from us.
