only 12 hospitals installed a fibroscan in 2012 in all uk, another crap healthcare system....considering cirrhotic livers are so common in uk due to bad diet/low quality food/alchool.
i guess hospitals in london may have easier access to a fibroscan

i live in uk, worst care anywhere. hospital here infected me. i had fibroscan here and got false reading. i know liver clinic in london does all the tests but very expensive not sure if it is worth your time and money. but you can find out. i now will go abroad for any tests or to see proper doctors.

Yes, the place in London is expensive and they are not even very efficient being a private clinic. If I could find another place in uk i would go there. Hope you are keeping well.

Thanks guys.

I don't want to go waste my money.

I will arrange an Italian visa later in the year and go do the tests in Italy.

Or, are there good hospital in UAE too to do the tests? That's another easy place for me to travel to from Nigeria here.
