Clomid is a medication that has been used for a number of years to stimulate fertility or increase production of FSH or LH and release in ovaries by women.  Lately Clomid has been tried to stimulate the testicular production of estrogen.  It is neither estrogenic nor antiestrogenic. It has a direct impact on testicles to produce higher levels of spermatogenesis.

Testosterone levels can vary considerably from individual to individual.  It is somewhat common for a young person (21 years of age) to have a low level of total testosterone reported at 310 ng/dl.  The reasons that individuals have low levels of testosterone are not clearly understood.  Basically, it has to do with the production of the testes of subnormal amounts of testosterone.  This can be a result of genetic factors, pituitary gland factors, medication interference and other interfering substances and factors.  The levels of 364, 432 are in the low range of normal.  It may not be a problem depending upon the degree of symptoms, fatigue, weakness, low libido, etc.

A trial dose of testosterone in a moderate amount may be beneficial to determine if this would be beneficial from a medical perspective.  I feel that without a trial dose and follow up blood tests to determine increased levels one cannot know for sure. 

HCG could be important to enhance normal spermatogenesis in the testicles.  If you're under age 35 and want to have children... your sperm count will not be reduced as much with HCG as with TRT.

The production of testosterone will be reduced.  The percentage is unknown and can vary among individuals.  The feedback mechanism will reduce the pituitary production of LH and FSH which will reduce your testosterone produced in the testes.

I'll echo the sentiment that you should most certainly see another physician. I'm not at all familiar with medicine in the UK, but I would think you could find a more progressive MD.
