I finally got to see my new consultant yesterday. Professor Moots at Aintree Hospital Liverpool, he is a great clinician and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a new opinion, a second opinion or just wants fresh eyes on your case. He is open to questions, is fully prepared to accept that you know how you are feeling and what you are experiencing and is proactive in providing a plan for the way forward. Most importantly he listens and hears what you are saying. The whole rheumy team are supportive, friendly and accessible.
