"Excellent Treatment Received in Rheumatology..."

About: Fairfield General Hospital

Just want to say a big thank you for the excellent treatment I received last week when I attended rheumatology clinic. My physiotherapy treatment had been suspended as it was felt my rheumatological condition was impinging on my progress an as such I needed an immediate review.

As always the staff (who are always under considerable pressure due to financial restraints), treated me with dignity and respect and managed to fit me in the list for clinic that day, for which I am extremely grateful.

I have been suffering after a knee operation some three months ago for which there has been limited progress in respect of my recovery.

When I attended rheumatology in total despair, I was taken seriously and the staff bent over backwards to assist me.

I was given a steroid injection, which has now taken effect and I am delighted to report that I feel better now than before my operation.

My mobility is greatly improved an the pain is significantly less.

Thank you all again for such a fabulous service - Well Done!!! Fantastic Team
