Has anyone any experiences of gastro paed clinic my child goes this week and we don’t no why we go here and what happens 

  • Hi again  

    I wondered if you'd taken up my previous suggestion of asking the nurses on the Macmillan Support Line what happens at the gastro paed clinic? Whilst they won't be able to access your child's medical records, they would be able to give you an overview of what usually happens at that clinic.

    To save you looking up the number it's 0808 808 0000 and they're available every day from 8am to 8pm.
