Hi,

I am sorry to hear about your Meniere's disease,

Unfortunately JustAnswer cannot arrange for any referrals or even offline consultations,

You can ask your GP to refer you to an ENT who can in turn refer you to St Anthony's, or get a private appointment with an ENT to get better treatment,

Does this help?

Not really as a referral is what I’m requesting. I can’t see my GP until next Wednesday

Ok,

So how can I assist you then?

Warm regards
