Had my first appointment at the hospital yesterday after diagnosis of CD. Was pleasantly surprised at how thorough the consultant was. He arranged several blood tests, booked a colonoscopy and endoscopy (not pleasant but necessary) and even asked my GP to give me a pneumococcal vaccine as he said my spleen was very small due to the CD.
I have complained about my GP's lack of knowledge of CD and read lots on this site about lack of follow up treatment at other hospitals so thought it would be good to put a positive blog on here about the NHS.
I think I'm lucky though as my hospital is one of the main teaching hospitals in London.
