"Very good indeed but could advise more about diet."

About: Shepton Mallet NHS Treatment Centre

I recently attended Shepton Mallet for an X ray on my knee where I was told i had arthritis. Nothing could be done till several years down the line as the next stage is a new knee, I was quite happy with the time spent the doctor who explained my X ray to me and I felt it was a very useful ten minutes but on the way home I felt some kind of advice could have been given about what I could do to help the situation. When I got home I went on line and read loads on diet and arthritis and understand more now about how what we eat can greatly effect the pain and perhaps , even with the right diet can ease the arthritis and maybe start to get rid of it. Sop how about it Shepton Mallet ? You do a fantastic job with your patients and I have recommended your place to anyone older I come across with a limp but how about some advice on reading up on the subject............or does this cross lines on Health and Safety?
