no point whatever in going to glocester or cheltenham or Tewksbury cos they are all run by same endo

Bristol may be best bet IF THEY REMEMBERED what Coin Dayan taught them

Hi Anuba, I am very interested as well in what replies you get....I live in Stroud. having heard not so great things about our local hospitals, I cast the net a little further and found the wonderful Churchill Hospital (called OCDEM...oxford college of diabetes and endocrine medicine) which seems to be a little more progressive...(they even do cortisol curves!!!). Sadly my lovely consultant is leaving for a teaching post and there will be locum for a while, so it will be pot luck. However, on the whole I think the whole department is a bit more progressive. I believe referrals there have to be tertiary ie that you have had no satisfaction with your local hospitals (ie secondary) but it maybe worth checking this out if oxford is not too far for you to travel. Hope this helps, katey

Hi Anuba

I live in Gloucester and could not even get an Endo appointment locally. (NHS).

My instincts tell me that I would go to a city like Bristol in preference to

Cheltenham or Gloucester.

Just my thoughts.

I hope it helps you decide.
