"Appt with rheumatologist"

About: Epsom Hospital

I was not prepared for blood pressure and blood tests as well as appointment. Staff had difficulty in obtaining blood. One possible reason was dehydration. I was advised to drink 2 pints of water prior to having the test. I did not know this in advance and it could have saved most of the anxiety and frustration.
