Experienced Patients are not medically trained or otherwise professionally qualified in health-related disciplines. They are not permitted to give advice, particularly medical advice, which may be defined as attempting to diagnose, treat or cure an illness or injury. They may only share information on their own experiences and provide moral support.
Patients should not construe anything which an Experienced Patient says or writes as advice, medical or otherwise. By making an appointment with an Experienced Patient, patients are expressly agreeing to this.
I have an arrangement with Dr Myhill which works like this - if we get to a stage where we are 'stuck' and I don't have the necessary experience to help you with a particular issue then, by mutual consent between you and me, I am able to consult Dr Myhill on your behalf about this issue. There will be NO CHARGE to you for this service. NHW will bear the full cost of my consulting with Dr Myhill on your behalf. This offer is subject to change and so these generous terms may not always be available. I will pass on Dr Myhill's advice to you and for legal reasons, it will be taken that Dr Myhill has advised you directly - I will make no comment on Dr Myhill's advice and will pass it to you verbatim.
