You will be in good hands, I attended Chapel Allerton until 4 month ago, and could not fault there expertise, I live in east Kent 😁. I have seen both Dr Mackie and Dr Marzo-Ortega who are both wonderful. Good luck

Hi, I am at Chapel Allerton too, there on 3rd March. I am quite new to this hospital after asking to be transferred from York. I haven't had anything that controls my pain and flares yet but after 3 years I really hope they can help. Let us all know how you get on? You never know, if we're there the same day a coffee and naughty cake may be had! Good luck. Lesley

This disease is just a nightmare, I live in York but my mum and son live in Pudsey (I used to live there too) so I know the area well. I would love the chance to meet up with someone in the same boat. I don't know anyone with this so to share a chat would be great. Are you free in the afternoon of Saturday the 11th? We could meet in Farsley or Pudsey as I will be going to visit my mum afterwards anyway. Take care, have a lovely weekend and I hope to meet up soon? Lesley (lesley5535@gmail.com)

Hello Dee, I hope you get all the answers too, but please make sure you have a written list of all the questions you want answers to and tick them off one by one. Only leave if you have talked about everything you have written down. The doctors will appreciate that you have thought about the appointment and you are actively involved. All the very best.
