Miss Kim Wheeler

Dear Sir or Madam,

Could you please say how many patients are referred annually (last three years) to hospitals by their GPs for consideration of hypothyroidism? How many of these have TSH results within "normal" range? How many of them are prescribed treatment within the NHS for their thyroid? How many are left without treatment for hypothyroidism symptoms?

If these figures are not collated can I ask why not?

Yours faithfully,

Miss Kim Wheeler

Department of Health and Social Care
