Extend eligibility for MedEx certificates to people with hyperthyroidism
The Government should add hyperthyroidism, such as autoimmune Graves Disease, to list of illnesses that entitle people to a MedEx certificate, and so free NHS prescriptions.
Many sufferers of hyperthyroidism need multiple medications, without which we could suffer fatal medical emergencies such as thyroid storms. People who suffer from hypoparathyroidism are eligible for MedEx certificates, and people with hyperthyroidism should be afforded the same treatment by the Government.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
