Well. I read my prepared request. The snr GP straight away went on the computer and I asked for the form with the password. He said he was trying to do just that but MRI would not come up. He said sometimes if my RHEUMY not ok it, it would not come up (?) I reiterated my lack of faith in current rheumy and gave details. He kept trying and showed me the screen full of hospitals in and around Manchester from cheadle to macclesfield but no Man Royal Inf. He said the only way was to write a letter then and proceeded to note name etc on screen as he had difficulty remembering Prof Bruce's name. So, easier than I expected but whether my reasoned, reading approach and/or the presence of my hubby sitting there had an extra incentive, we can't know. Watch this space.
Aside to Paul. Have you heard of some hospitals not listed on the choose and book site? Is there a reason for it do you know?
Thanks for all your good wishes and positive vibes sent over the ether for today. I felt that I had an army behind me.
