This website is dedicated to the millions of thyroid patients who are being ignored and left to suffer unnecessarily, and to healthcare practitioners, who want to better serve those patients.

The Royal College of Physicians does not want to know!

[SIZE=4]On 16th April (2010), TPA sent a letter to the Royal College of Physicians [SIZE=4](London) asking them to distribute copies to all the co-authors of their Policy Statement on ‘Tthe Diagnosis and Management of Primary Hypothyroidism’. TPA sent a rebuttal to their statement from Dr Thierry Hertoghe (President, International Hormone Society), an up to date Guideline on the Diagnosis and Treatment of Hypothyroidism from Dr Sarah Myhill, backed by many doctors, [/SIZE]the original rebuttal from that Eric Pritchard (US Researcher), which the RCP had previously ignored and [SIZE=4]a letter from the late Dr Gordon Skinner[/SIZE][/SIZE].

TPA sent the RCP the above letter asking them to amend their policy statement according to the medical science that has been around for over 40 years, which they choose to ignore. Here is the response from Professor Gilmour’s ex President of the RCP) Personal Assistant (Catherine Perry)

Dear Mrs Turner
Thank you for your letter and enclosures sent to the President on 16th February. Professor Gilmour has asked me to say that the Statement was subject to considerable discussion by the Council of the College, as well as review by a specialist group in response to the comments made after its initial publication. It represents the concensus of medical opinion of the College and the other bodies that were involved in its preparation. The College cannot enter into any further correspondence on this issue.
Yours sincerely,
[SIZE=4]Catharyn Perry Professional Affairs Department.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=4]TPA has sent numerous surveys, papers to the RCP since, plus a second rebuttal entitled
‘Royal College of Physicians The Great Thyroid Scandal’. This was sent to the RCP July 2012, again in September 2012 and yet again on 31 January 2013 because of their failure to respond or acknowledge receipt. On the 18 February 2013 , 3 years after sending their extremely negative and uncaring response, the RCP has at last broken its silence.[/SIZE]

Dear Ms Turner,
The President, Sir Richard Thompson has asked me to reply to you and remind you of the Royal College of Physicians response dated 2 March 2010, in which it was stated that the College cannot enter into any further correspondence on this issue. The Royal College of Physicians position has not changed.
With kind regards, Graeme Long, Executive Assistant to the President
