Has anyone ever managed to get their smart meter removed on health grounds? Since mine was fitted in 2014 I have suffered from insomnia and tinnitus and have recently learnt that it is highly likely it is being caused by my smart meter. In addition as it was fitted by Eon and we were only with them for a year it has not been in use for 4 of the 5 years I have had it.

Welcome to the community and sorry about your tinnitus.
The original smart meters (Smets1) was a stupid premature roll out meaning as soon as you changed suppliers the meters became dumb. This will not apply to the current roll out of Smets 2 being trialled by PP and being installed. Those with Smets1 have been advised that there will be software upgrades for these original smart meters some time in the future.....
There is a list of Smets1 meters that can be upgraded and if its not software compliant then a Smets2 option will be available across industry and not supplier specific - lots of info via this link.
If you go to the FaQ's lots of stuff about meters if your that way inclined.
Heres a link to the lates posts:
Personally I'm just gonna sit back and watch the whole game happen and see no reason for one until I'm dragged to the party.
However, I can fully understand the reason for some peeps that need them for all sorts of reasons.
But saving money I think will be at most minimal for most people.
I guess at least it will be fascianting to watch how much it costs to make a cup of tea - "nice and relaxing".
Anyway I've said too much and listen out for more feedback from the smart meter geeks
