Are there any private paediatric neurologists anyone can recommend?

My nephew has developmental regression and has seizure 6-7 times a day, he is currently on a NG tube as it is unsafe for him to swallow. He has not yet been given a diagnosis however they do suspect that he may have Leigh disease and his seizures now have become worse than before to the point that he is now crying and you can see he is in pain 

Are there any private paediatric neurologist that you can recommend that can assist us further ?

    Hi @hamoudh :) Welcome to the community.

    I'm sorry to hear about the situation your nephew is in, I'm sure that must be distressing for the whole family. I don't have a recommendation for a paediatric neurologist unfortunately. Have you looked online to find one close to your location that you could contact, perhaps for an initial consultation?

    @hamoudh welcome to scope, perhaps your GP could recommend someone suitable?
