I have been referred to Heartlands by my local consultant in Bath as my igE levels were 3000+ for various things. I have been invited to join the Xolair study as I fit all criteria but have no idea what to expect from Heartlands.
My asthma was very badly managed at GP level and a 10day admission 6 months ago, after GP told me I didn't sound wheezy on the phone and made me an appointment 6 hours later resulting in a huge crash and blue light dash into hospital. During my admission the consultants were horrified I hadn't been referred to them sooner. now I'm on my way elsewhere!
