Thyroid UK, along with other thyroid groups including the British Thyroid Association, has worked on a dossier that was requested by the Lord O’Shaughnessy, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Health and Social Care. He wanted to see clear evidence that NHS England Guidance was not being followed by CCGs in respect of the prescribing of Liothyronine and this is what we were able to give him.
If you are in contact with journalists, do please send them the press release with a link to the dossier (the document is too large to send via email or to print).
If your MP was sympathetic or interested in this issue, please send them a link to the dossier and ask them to contact Lord O’Shaughnessy for an update.
A meeting is now being organised with NHS England so hopefully, the dossier has given enough evidence to make change. We’ll keep you informed.
