This would be my first post on this site so please do go easy on me xxx
I was wondering if any of you had been diagnosed privately or on NHS. I'm 50 years old female with suspicious symptoms of potential ASP. In 2009, I had some stroke-like event which gave me disability as I used to be quite fit and alert. My marriage went down and so my employment, friends etc. But I won't go into too much details to bore you with ...x
Unfortunately, my current financial situation means that I may be forced to be seen on NHS and may not be able to go for a private screening. I gather that Prof H is/had been retired from NHS (?). Did you have any specific doctor in mind when your GP was referring you to St Thomas's hospital for ASP screening? (This question may be too sensitive to be answered; so PM me, please if you can? Thank you! xx)
I also had sjogren's symptoms over many years and my eyes are only getting worse.
Am I correct to assume that you get to see a clinician who had been trained by Prof H (?) on NHS and these clinicians are also as good as Prof H? Is it better to see Prof Hugh privately after waiting for longer to save up?
I'm just trying to figure these out first by asking these questions if that's OK? Thanks very much in advance.
Have a nice weekend!
