Hey Thurl, Pleased it worked for you, I can only pass on the advise I was given by a UK liver specialist & London GP which worked for me with GP and Hospital. No, not everyone has been so successful regarding NHS monitoring, my London Hospital said a very clear 'No' but thankfully a few more uk hospitals are slowly coming round to the idea and I changed my hospital (but had to travel). Maybe better to lower risk of rejection though until the day comes that it's the 'norm' ? Many GPs don't know the ins & outs of the new DDAs but they know the names Cipla & Mylan. It's easy to forget the stress organising these things once everything's in place, you know? Yes, a post-code lottery and also I feel, down to the individual consultant and their ermm 'responsibilities' - Glad it worked for you.
(edit) Have added the word 'most' to my post to reflect your experience
