I am exposing the above health authority as uncaring money grabbing bullies for putting me (and others like me) with chronic disease through the most stressfull year of my life. After 28 years of continuity of care at a hospital in Cardiff (I live in Newport Gwent but there was no rheumatology in my area back then) with a brilliant rheumatologist and his team with whom I have built up confidence and trust over many years. I have been hounded relentlessly and am being forced to move my care and start over with a new Health Authority because they want to procure my funding. I have tried to fight them but they have ignored all my concerns. My RA is severe and I am awaiting spinal/neck surgery as I have a serious problem which has huge implications for my long term health. I am frightened that my long term health care/continuity will be affected. None of my records including x rays will be transferred; just an A4 sized letter after 28 years of care. All I can do now is make people aware that AB Health Authority puts money before patients health. Thanks for listening. Pat
