Good morning, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today

I am sorry to hear this. To get tested you can request a referral via the NHS, however unfortunately the typical referral time pre COVID was 2 years.

Otherwise an option is being assessed privately, many now do this remotely and can cost up to £500.

I will find you a link to one of these services.
