Default Newcastle UK Doctors for PWS??

Does anyone have a good reference for a doctor with BUPA or NHS (doesn't matter)

My child was recently born and his ped. said to wait at least five to seven years prior to treatment!!!! Not good from everything that I have been reading...

Thx

hi i recently saw and had a treatment with mrs pape at skin in newcastle (private)thats her private practice she was very nice so far i am yet to see an improvement but she did say not to expect too much the first time she also works at the RVI in newcastle and siad she would see me on the nhs if i got a referal from my gp so if your gp will let you i'm sure you could go on the nhs which is what i'm going to do after my second treatment good luck

Thanks so much red head... That is the second time I have heard that name... I am going to try and get my GP to send it over to her. I live fairly close to my GP and he is pretty cool.... Thanks for the reference....
