I know that a lot of you have had problems with the NHS so thought you might find a positive message refreshing.I had my first rheumy appointment on 5th November and was given a probable diagnosis of RA and had lots of tests done on the day. Went to GP yesterday for blood pressure check (its OK ) and they had got a letter from hospital although it didnt tell me anything more than I already knew. At the appointment they told me I would get and appointment in 6 weeks but that it may be 10 weeks. Got an appointment today for further ultrasound scan in the biomedical research unit on 11th and appointment to see professor of rheumatology on 12th so just over 5 weeks from 1st to second appointment. Cant fault them for the time but the hospital is a major Rheumatology centre and is very highly regarded as a forwardd thinking research unit.
gentle hugs and positive thoughts to you all
