Referral advice

Hi, I was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with Bell's palsy, then a week into symptoms my GP determined I had herpes zoster, although he says this is not Ramsay Hunt syndrome as I did not have all of the symptoms - vertigo, hearing loss etc.

He has agreed to refer me, but I now need to find someone that has experience of Bell's palsy, which is not easy as a layman.

Does anyone have any recommendations. I'm based in Northants, but would be willing to travel.

Thanks!
