I have been referred to David Hewin, so we will see. If he wont provde a band on the nhs for me, then I will see him privately in Cheltenham.

Did you go down the nhs line in gloucestershire?

Best,

Jo

No I went straight to sell pay, as I didnt want to wait, not getting any younger!! Dr Chris in Belgium has an excellent reputation also great reports on here and its a lot cheaper than the UK

No sorry just heard from a couple of friends that they were turned away by their GP although they met the criteria.
