After being admitted to RHH with pain, mobility problems, pleurisy, and dehydration I was swiftly diagnosed with Lupus.
Medication made a tremendously positive improvement almost immediately. Further medications were given and I felt better quickly. Staff were very caring and gave me time to adjust to a diagnosis of a serious and incurable illness.
The lupus nurse came to see me within minutes of my diagnosis and held my hand while I cried. She was reassuring and genuine. A staff member who also has lupus came to talk to me and I was able to ask any question.
The medics were also very caring and understanding and gave me reassurance and honest information.
I now attend the lupus clinic and nothing is too much trouble for the staff, I have regular investigations. Communication is extreemy good and I never have to repeat my history. Staff are consistent and inclusive.
