As part of the media campaign highlighting the importance of early diagnosis i.e. The S Factor Campaign, NRAS require someone who has been fairly recently diagnosed with RA to be interviewed for a Daily Mail article to be published on Tuesday. Yes Tuesday of next week!
Ideally the Daily Mail want someone who although has been recently diagnosed had a struggle to get that diagnosis i.e. did you delay going to see your GP perhaps not identifying the symptoms as possibly serious; did your GP take you seriously?; was there too long a delay from seeing your GP to seeing a rheumatology consultant? Etc.
More than likely it will be a telephone interview but that will be confirmed to person selected and they will probably want a recent photograph of you or they may send a photographer to your home.
PLEASE EMAIL ME IMMEDIATELY at firstname.lastname@example.org WITH AN OUTLINE OF YOUR DIAGNOSIS STORY if you wish to take part.
Your urgent attention is most appreciated.
