I am sorry but I cannot answer unsolicited questions sent from patients or relatives to me either by e-mail or through the website.

Clinical advice should be sought from a patient’s General Practitioner prior to any referral.

Unsolicited e-mails requesting clinical advice regrettably cannot be responded to.
