Vasculitis Specialist

Hi all, I wonder if anyone can tell me who would be our nearest Vasculitis Specialist for Microscopic Polyangiitis in the Dundee area please? At present my Mum sees a Renal specialist who we have no complaints about but I think it might be valuable for her to see a Vasculitis Specialist?? Also how would we go about organising this - would we have to request it privately or could we request it through GP? Sorry for all the questions and thank you in anticipation of all the answers. I was overwhelmed by the amount of support and information received earlier in the year from the people on this forum and I have it all noted to take with us next Tuusday (8th) when we see Mum's Consultant again! 😀🙄😀

Hi Sandra,

If you give me an e mail on lynn@vasculitis.org.uk then I can come up with some names for you.

You can request a referral from your GP or ask your Mum's renal Consultant if he would consider referring you and sharing care, sometimes 2 heads are better than one!

Dear Sandra,

Have you left a message for John, or Susan, (Mills)? It might be worth a try-they DO seem the font of all 'things' Vasculitis/auto-immune.

You can contact them at 'jandsmills@btinternet.com'. You can mention my name, I intend to make them aware, of your post/question in any event.

I hope that you find a Specialist, in your area.

Very best wishes
