"rhumatology service at king george not giving..."

About: King George Hospital

i was diagnosed with rhumatoid arthritis , 3 years ago in my late 40s , and i probably have seen the consultant twice , and the nurse twice , even tho they send appoitments for every 3 months , these appointments are constantly being canceld and put back so now i think they are going to be anualy appointments instead of every 3 months , even tho my arthritis has progresed i dont get any help from the department , and have to push my gp to get referals outside , so i can get some relieif , if im lucky enough to see a consultant , your just muged off , with the answer well see how it is on your next appointment , and if its the same we will try something else , ( then 3 or 4 canceld appointments later same answer . so all in all there much use to me .
