Anyone following my saga and the joy of finding my new practice is so much better will know a new GP gave me the magic number to get straight throught to rheumatology (,which seems to have filed me in the circular filing cabinet). I was told I'd get an appt in the post. This morning I had an anxious call to say they had not only got my call, but now a letter from my new GP and wanted to assure me the appt would be with me pronto.
Feel such a numpty for waiting so long for my last practice to "improve", but very grateful to GPs who calmly say they know a lot, but not a great deal about auto immunity and need expert input.
Trying not to be cynical about when the appt will actually be, but getting Number Two son on standby to accompany me on the day. As many of us know, being female does not get you the necessary outcome.
