"My personal opinion of my treatment rheumatology"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

I was in hospital for two weeks prior to xmas 2015. I was diagnosed with vasculitis a rare condition affecting six in a million so I regard myself as being a tad unlucky. However the treatment I received was first class from porters to cleaners, ward nurses, doctors and consultants, all were brilliant. I am on a recovery programme now and all is going well.

At a time when all the media news seems to knock the NHS I for one can only offer my utmost praise to all concerned and my gratitude to the care I received. Keep up the good work and again many thanks to all.
