Recently the CMA levied fines of £84 million to those companies that caused a price hike for liothyronine, causing untold distress for many thyroid patients.
Dr Peter Taylor has created a Government Petition requesting that an amount equivalent to a proportion of the fine (1-5%) is made available for thyroid research and support for patients with hypothyroidism.
Can you imagine how much thyroid research can be done with £4,000,000???
I think it’s only right that some of that fine should go to thyroid research so do please sign this petition and let’s get it to 100,000 signatures so that it is debated in Parliament!
