Dr - GOSH

Postby aheaps » Wed Dec 10, 2008 10:30 pm

Hi everyone,

don't know if this has already been posted but I was at GOSH today to see Dr Hasson with my son and we saw Prof G instead because Dr Hasson has left. Apparently he left about 2 weeks ago.

They already have a lady doctor (sorry didn't get her name) who is going to be taking over. We met her today and seemed very nice.

Anyway just thought I would let everyone know.

Take care.

Claire

Hi,

Yes Dr. {Dr's name removed} has left the NHS..we know he is still seeing private patients and we are trying to get the details.
Aheaps is right, a lady locum is taking over his patients for the time being at GOSH and UCH, obviously under Prof G's supervision.

We will let everyone know more when we have been officially told.
Thanks

hope it is ok to add to this thread

I am gonna try and get my GP to refer my eldest to gosh but who do I tell her to write to now that Dr {Dr's name removed, please read site rules} has left?

it still says Dr {Dr's name removed, please read site rules} on the main HMSA website re: HMS clinics.

I assume, fingers crossed, they would accept my eldest as my middle dd has done the gosh 2 week course. Only thing is can you get a referral when the child has had no medical intervention at home?

I have been so focused on my 3 yr old that I just did not see the signs with my eldest - she has always complained of pains etc and gets very tired easily and cannot walk far without experiencing pain - albeit no where near what our 3 yr old is like - but I am still concerned none the less. PLus she is VERY bendy

I need to get her referred - we have an appt to see sue in june to check up on progress from the 2 week course in november for our 3 yr old and I was hoping we could get my 5 yr old seen by someone at same time

do you think this would be allowed? - I also thought if they saw my eldest and could diagnose her with eds too, and ask her to go on the 2 week course, then it means I would only have to make one trip as both dd's could do the course together

hope that all made sense

oh - last thing - sue said she would try and get a podiatrist appt for becca the day before sue's clinic in june - do I just phone up the rheumy secs to confirm this and to book the patient hotel?

am gonna phone them tomorrow to discuss june anyway - just wanted to see I was phoning right people first lol
