  • Hi Yozzer,

    Good luck - I'm off my my second opinion on Thursday as my rheumatologist was awful. I did see him privately as the wait was ridiculous but he has his NHS clinic in would be very interesting to see if it was the same person! Can you PM me?

    Good luck with Manchester - I have heard it is brilliant.

    Let us know how you got on.
