I don't know much about the UK, but the laws in the States regarding A/C refrigerant are very strict.
It is more likely that the compressor would suffer a mechanical failure before the refrigerant would fail. My 1991 beater car still has it's original factory charge.
It sounds like your system has a leak. Despite its ozone friendly claim, it isn't helping the environment any to keep adding more refrigerant.
I think your A/C specialist just likes regular clientele. Next time you get recharged, have them add refrigerant that contains colored dye and eventually the leak will become visible.
