sudden idea :
perhaps we could aim for a :TMAU Friends of Sheffield Children's Hospital
group (i.e. we are friends with them, but 'nudge' group really ... i.e. frenemies
to try and influence them.
2 aims that come to mind ...
1. a TMAU@sheff email address they use, so people can contact them easy (they have hid all their emails now)
2. try and persuade them to let us use a broker (NHS law) who can let us test diredct as close to the price as possible (£137)
re 2nd point, a broker ...
there's a NHS rule the test-order person must have a 'health qualification'.
In effect this can be pretty vague (i.e. natural therapist, nurse ... please check)
They also probably wouldn't send test kits (though they could).
So if any of us had a 'health qual', they might be able to act as broker.
Personally I wouldnt mind if they made a small fee for the service (say £25).
Just a thought
