Thanks for posting this story. Does anyone know who the "top consultant" from London is? i also wonder why the hospital has refused to have the consultant, could it be becuase ther want to investigate real biological abnormalities and treat them, this wouldnt fit in with the NICE gudelines and could cause a lot of problems for the NHS.

It seems to be the small, local newspapers that patients find will print their stories in the UK. That's a bit of a double edged sword as they also tend to print many of the "cured by LP, CBT.." stories as well.

Very good of Kerry Newnham to come forward and have her story published.
