"Treatment at the rheumatology department."

About: Shotley Bridge Hospital Site

I was diagnosed with the disease five years ago. I have had treetment in the South of England before I moved to the North. After being referred to Shortley bridge I was put under observation until the unit had the disease by the horns and had it under control! The treetment, support and care I have is top of the range and has given me my life back!! I can not thank the staff in this department enough who really have given me a full team around this disease! Thank you xx
