    As a Hidradenitis Suppurtiva patient, I found it very extremely difficult to find the right consultant for me - who understood my condition and how best to manage it. Since having Mr Westcott as my surgeon and consultant - I’ve been incredibly supported by him. He is very very knowledgeable, honest and helpful. I count myself very fortunate to have come across such an amazing doctor. I am confident my road to recovery is positive only because of Mr Westcott’s expertise, help and knowledge. My experience with him has always been a positive and uplifting one!
