" I could not have asked for a better Nurse to look after me"

About: Moorfield Clinic / Dermatology

(as the patient),

For a while I had been attending appointments at my GP for my skin as it was red, itchy, weeping and I was constantly scratching until it bled, giving me sleepless nights. All treatments given by my GP had no effect and so I was referred to a dermatologist. At my first appointment the Nurse explained my condition and how we could treat it. She has sorted out a treatment plan for me which so far has been extremely effective. She has supplied me with all the creams and ointments I need and shown me how to apply each one individually. She has also referred me to the hospital for a patch test and blood tests.

I am very grateful for everything she has done for me as after just a few days my skin feels so much better and I no longer have itching problems. She has even booked another appointment with me in one months' time to show me how to use particular cosmetics which will be perfect for my eczema skin. I could not have asked for a better Nurse to look after me and help to improve my skin.
