In a bid to increase patient safety and reduce medicines waste, health commissioning groups across the country are changing the way repeat prescriptions can be ordered. In many areas, pharmacies will no longer be able to order medications from GPs on behalf of patients. Instead you will need to order your repeat prescriptions from your GP practice yourself.
This survey is now closed - we needed 1000 responses, and we got them... and in record time! Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey - we're grateful for your input which will help to inform the development of treatment for hypothyroidism.
The draft guideline on the assessment and management of thyroid disease has now been published. This is a consultation document so if you would like to submit comments on the draft you can send them to us by email.

You may also contact us via email at email@example.com for support, though please note that it may take our medical advisors several weeks to answer your queries. We do not receive funding for answering medical queries, so please consider making a donation if you are able.
Clinical trials are used to test new and existing treatments. Sometimes the results (the overall picture of the treatment’s effects) are not published - which means that other medical researchers and doctors cannot use them. If you would like to change this situation to the ultimate benefit of patients, please sign the AllTrials petition.
