"rheumatology centre of excellence is deserving of..."

About: University Hospital Aintree

What I liked

Having lived in France for 6 years and being treated excellently for my Rheumatoid arthritis whilst there. I was a little apprehensive about returning to the UK Health service. I need not have been, my first appointment at the rheumatology dept went without any hitches, I was seen on time, the Nurse Specialist made time for me, I was prescribed the drugs I had in France[ I know they are very expensive] the 'shared care' protocol was explained to me thoroughly. I was given my next appointment before leaving, also very well done for the department being very near to the main entrance, so no long walks on joints that hurt. Congratulations.
