Extend eligibility for MedEx certificates to people with hyperthyroidism

Petition Details

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.

Additional Information

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.
