    Gareth Dr Hull's secretary as able to arrange early appt with Dr. Hull to discuss my extreme asthmatic breathing problems, experienced from May 2020. Dr Hull arranged breathing tests, Blood tests & CT Lung scan within 2hrs, waited until l completed every test, checked the results & spoke with me after 17:30 He gave a prescription for a new inhaler SPIRIVA RESPIMAT: unheard of help in these covid times, He recommended a course of Breathing physiotherapy & requires another Lung scan to check small 'scarring' on my airways in 2 months time. Finally he arranged a Video appt. to fully discuss the way forward a week ago. I am very happy with my treatment, the new additional inhaler has eased my breathing & virtually cleared my Wheezing. A huge Thank you to Dr. Hull. HAULWEN S.

    Dr Hull is clearly an expert in his field and I wish I had gotten referred to him sooner as my queries were related to sports performance specifically not general health and he has been really reassuring. He has an excellent manner and way of current through my ramble of symptoms to drive out some steps forward each time we speak which gives me great reassurance and is really appreciated.

    I work with Dr Hull regularly as a colleague both in the NHS and the private sector. He has a significant knowledge and experience of respiratory disease in both adults and elite sportspeople and is always available and informative to discuss these cases with. I would recommend him strongly, and will continue to call on his services whenever the situation requires it with confidence.
