Private paediatrician - south of England

Can anyone recommend a good private paediatrician? Our 8 week old DD is suffering from silent reflux, Gaviscon isn't working and the GP's advice was to give Infacol.......

She's getting worse and spent most of the weekend screaming in pain. I'm seeing another doctor on Friday and am going to ask for a paediatrician referral on the NHS (have HV on side as well) but I'm prepared to go private if necessary. We're Berkshire/Hampshire/Oxfordshire borders, but I'm wondering if it might have to be London?

Hello! My ds has silent reflux until he was six months old. It was hell. We took the NHS route and they were very good, you will see a paed fairly quickly if the GP refers you.
I don't want to depress you but boring we tried worked in the end, he had gaviscon then omeprozole and another drug, and some very distressing tests with tubes down his throat.
What I can say is that by six months he was a different baby. Just grew out of it.
It will get better though I knew you are in hell now.
Is your baby bottle or breast fed? Little and often is the best way
