Well as you know I was at the doc yesterday re gammy knee, they called this morning to say they have set up a rheumatoid assessment clinic.
I laughed my head off as my GP asked ME what Humira was. Apparently it's to keep in line with the risk of cardiac problems associated with RA!
I could be good and i know NRAS have been calling for more help into patients with RA and the associated risks of heart problems. if I had any confidence in it, The nurse running it has no experience or extra training in RA!
So it's a paper exercise as the hospital still look after me and all the want to do is check my cholesterol, at an RA clinic? which is always very low on last checks.
So now I have asthma clinic, RA clinic, diabetic clinic, cardiac clinic. All separate. . I asked her why he couldn't just look at my cardiac results but was told no it has to be Separate! Think I might talk to the practice manager!!
