I've been quiet but have been viewing the posts.
Our rhuemy team in North Essex is being shut down. No reason being given and no notification from management either. I heard this update from my nurse when I went to restart MTX - rheumatoid lung nodules and lung function tests: all good.
I'm under the impression that the decision was not based on economics, but is politically motivated... there was originally an edict to shut down in 24 hours but it's now at the end of the month.
Has anyone been involved with protests / representations / submissions in relation to service continuation when a service is under the axe? Any ideas or experience would be welcome!
They are a great team who work beyond the call of duty and I know they have us patients as their focus. They have had over 6000 patients in 7 years so their efforts are well used in the local community.
