Citation list for PHARMAC funded thyroid medications and patient survey data

Belinda Hodson made this Official Information request to Pharmaceutical Management Agency

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Pharmaceutical Management Agency should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Belinda Hodson

Dear Pharmaceutical Management Agency,

As at 1st June 2019, for all currently PHARMAC funded thyroid medications; please provide:

1. The citation list (clinical research studies, other clinical papers and publications including randomised control trials and guidelines) that support all currently PHARMAC funded thyroid medications. Citations are to include those on safety, benefits, efficacy and risk, and risk management; and

2. The citation list of all patient survey data that supports these treatments.

Yours faithfully,

Belinda Hodson

Dear Pharmaceutical Management Agency,

Thank you for acknowledging my OIA request. Just one question. The acknowledgment came back with:

But my request was not to do with antibiotics. It is to do with thyroid medications and citation lists. I just want to check that you I didn't get a reply that was meant to go to another person raising an OIA?

Yours faithfully,

Belinda Hodson
