"the lupus loner"

About: Barnsley Hospital / Rheumatology

(as a relative),

my lupus was diagnosed and treated by dr bothwell at dermatology, barnsley for years to my satisfaction. last appointment i saw a different doctor who stated that i was in the wrong place as i had no skin problems at that time and my attempts to discuss other lupus-related issues were not listened to. I was left with no treatment for currant problems or referral to someone else who the doctor may have thought more suitable. i have had to wait for a new referral by my gp to a different dept. and therefore have had no management or support for my illness for several months.
