About: Royal National Hospital For Rheumatic Diseases

Anything else?

I have been suffering with chronic pain since Jan 2010 following a RTC. In May 2013 I was finally acknowledged by the consultant and her super dynamic team. I was diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome.I was invited to have two weeks rehabilitation as an in-patient. The approach by the 'Min' was multi-disciplinary and I was supported as a person rather a diagnosis. All the specialists were amazing treating us all as individuals. The support I have received so far has proved invaluable enabling me to achieve realistic goals for improvement . The treatment and support has made me feel safe and I know the continuing on-going support is going to prove as my light in the darkness.
