Hi all,

I normally post in the lyme forum because that is my primary affliction.

I have however developed GI problems which point to the gallbladder apparently;

RHS upper quad pain which radiates to back, pale stools, elevated alt....

So I am looking for a good Gastro doc in the North West of the United Kingdom, preferably North Wales.

I would welcome recommendations.

Thank you,

Go on to the Nuffield healthcare and you should be able to search a gastro consultant near to you and if you need additional tests, you can transfer back to the Nhs and be under your consultant care. If you have medical insurance that's fine too. Usually the Nuffield consultants are highly recommended, I chose mine from there , I use dr Alan Bohan but he's based in Newcastle under Lyme .

I see from your last post that you use a Dr in Newcastle. I was just thinking what a small world as that is where I was born and bred. Although I no longer live there I still have a lot of family living in Newcastle and Stoke-on-Trent and visit regularly. I still think of it as home.
Sorry just thought I'd mention it - I hope you don't mind.

Another way, is to go and see your GP and ask him to find you a specialist in the area that you require, I believe most GP's have access to a register which details all consultants areas of expertise.
Alternatively look through the Spire's lists of consultants in your required area, then Google a search to see if they practise locally on the NHS, if you don't want to go privately.
Hope this helps.
