I had bloods taken by my GP's surgery 3 weeks ago, I saw rheumy nurse 2 weeks ago & had my bloods done! My surgery sent me a letter telling me to make an appointment with a doc to discuss my results. Despite trying I cannot get an appointment!! I rang rheumy nurse help line & nurse got back to me in half an hour, all she could tell me was my CRP was 59, expected really as I'm to hopefully start biological meds. What has happened to the communication between doctors surgeries & specialists?? It's even difficult trying to get a blood form from anybody, test results from ONE set of blood tests used to be shared between surgery & specialists. Now it must be more expensive due to the lack of cooperation between the 2!?!?
