Mitochondrial test interpretations available for new patients from 1st January 2015
Update on patient access to Dr Myhill - June 2018
Please note that due to Dr Myhill’s extremely heavy workload the following policies will still apply:
1.No new patient consultations are currently being accepted.
2.‘Correspondence only’ patients (i.e. those who have had testing done through Dr Myhill but have never spoken with her at a consultation) may order
repeat or other tests as required.
3. All other test requests from non-patients remain suspended.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: February 2015
Mitochondrial Function Tests have now been suspended for new patients, once again, until further notice. This is due to my excessive workload. Please watch this space for news of when testing is likely to be resumed. Please see my January 2015 notice below, which is now superseded by this announcement, for what is meant by a 'new' patient.
Text of January 2015 Notice
I am currently experiencing a very heavy work load and an exceptionally high number of referrals from other doctors, self referrals, other requests for advice and interpretation of test results. I simply cannot deal with demand. This means that I have no other option but to suspend all advice, appointments and test orders (with the exception of the Mitochondrial Function Profile test) to those to whom I refer as "new patients". If you are a "new patient", i.e. you have never received advice from me before (by way of a face-to-face or a telephone consultation, or a letter of advice based on a questionnaire, or an interpretation of your test results), then any such first requests for advice and first test orders cannot currently be accepted. Current patients can access my advice and book appointments as usual.
Requests for the Mitochondrial Function Test are available for new patients from 1st January 2015 - please watch this space for the resumption of all other test requests. Please see here for how to order tests - Ordering Tests.
I believe this is due to the recent book we published about CFS. This book is available to buy from my online shop Sales at Dr Myhill: CFS - it's mitochondria, not hypochondria and many answers lie within!
