"Rheumatoid arthritis not managed"

About: Calderdale Royal Hospital

I am very dissatisfied with the rheumatology service at Calderdale royal hospital, I feel that I have not been listened to during consultations regarding treatment. I am constantly having flare ups resulting in the need for people to gete dressed, unusable to look after my children, having to have time off work, uncontrolled pain..... May the list continue. All this and I am 26 and also due to poor management of my disease I have now got lung disease. Needless to say I have asked to be transferred to another hospital and shall not be under the care of the doctor
