"Wonderful rheumatology clinic"

About: Mile End Hospital

I was seen for the first time at the rheumatology clinic. My appointment was as 1030 and I only waited 10 minutes to be seen. The consultant gave me a full assessment, had an ultrasound done during my appointment and arranged for me to have same-day bloods, X-rays, and a steroid injection done. I was finished with all these tests by 12:00. I could not have asked for better, more thorough treatment. My only complaint is it took 5 months from the time my GP made the referral til the time of my first appointment.
