    Thanks for your question and sorry that you are not having much success in finding a good healthcare professional to support you. Unfortunately however we do not allow individual consultants to be named on this forum for legal reasons.

    However for an idea of some of the centres of endometriosis expertise that do exist in the UK you may like to visit and visit their Endometriosis Centres section. These are centres with multi-disciplinary endometriosis teams. Make sure you look at both the fully accredited centres and the provisional ones. There is more information on this site as well about the centres and what a centre has to do to qualify.

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes
