Learning Disability Health check on 16/03/2021

This was a pre-arranged appointment initiated by the surgery and was a telephone consultation with the GP and Fela's mum. Normally mum would take Fela to the surgery and he would have his blood pressure and weight checked.

She asked a few routine questions about Fela – any cough, digestion or bowel irregularities. None were reported.

I used the opportunity to update her on the latest news regarding cryosurgery for Fela's keloids. I shared the news from plastic surgeon, Mr Singh, about three weeks ago that the needles would arrive in two weeks.

Mr Singh is furloughed until the end of March 2021. Also, he indicated that since all the theatres have been designated for Covid patients, he would look for a room to hire at a private hospital where he could perform the surgery.

I emphasised that Fela's keloids were growing on his left side which is the side he sleeps on; and that this was still disrupting his sleep due to the discomfort and itching.

Medication Prescribed: N/A

Follow Up:Dr. Kostakopolou said that if Mr. Singh is not available to do the surgery from April onwards for whatever reason, then provided we could get the name of one of his colleagues who is trained in the surgery, then she would be prepared to refer him to this new consultant.
