"The consultant"

About: Lincoln County Hospital

I was assessed by the Consultant Rheumatologist, recently and cannot thank them enough for the way in which they treated me.

They were thoughtful, understanding, friendly, knowledgeable and, I know it's a cliche, but they really did seem to care.

They understood the way I was feeling, listened thoroughly to what I needed to say, asked appropriate questions and, together, we formulated an action plan.

They were positive about the support I could be offered from many related departments and, therefore, so am I.

I felt, 'lighter', as I left the department and ready to work with the other professionals to manage this condition.

Thank you.

I consider myself very lucky to be under the care of the consultant.
