"rheumatology team are top notch"

About: Hinchingbrooke Hospital

I've been under the rheumatology team at Hinchingbrooke hospital for a year now. My rheumatology nurse lends a whole lot more to feeling cared for and understood. I know not all medical profession is able to experience these diseases first hand but it really is a special benefit to us patients. I have also spoken to and I am due to see the biologics nurse who has also been thus far a great support over the phone. I've had a very difficult and very rapid onset of severe RA and its changed my life completely, so I wanted to leave a great review for this team, including the wonderful reception team, thank you so much to you all for supporting me through the hardest times of my life. A special mention has to go to a particular nurse, as I say, they truly is a treasure to behold for anyone going through this. Its so difficult when everyone I see has no idea what I am going through. They are definitely someone who should be looked up to with much respect, to keep going the way they do, bringing so many help thru this disease! Thank you rheumy team, I have a lot of experience with hospitals and specialists from many areas and your team truly is top notch! Cassandra Bird
