PRP injections


I have been looking at PRP injections. Has anyone had any success with them and are they available on the NHS.

Many thanks.

    Hi PoppyJane

    The link doesn't mention PRP. What I really want to know is can I have treatment on the NHS? My GP says he doesn't offer it. Do you know anyone who does?

    Many thanks

    Thank you so much Peter. Can I ask my gp to refer me to this hospital although it is not in my area?
