"Rheumatology Appointment 9.1.14"

About: Leighton Hospital

I have today been for a follow up appointment at Leighton Hospital, from one that I had in June 2013 at Northwich Victoria. I had an appointment with a doctor, I saw a different doctor, unfortunately I cannot remember the exact name. I was discharged from my original ailment and mentioned that I had aching hips, knees and legs since my flu jab. The doctor promptly sent me for blood tests and said that he would let me know the results. My appointment was for 10.45, and I had been seen and was awaiting my blood tests by 10.55, I felt unhurried and that the doctor had time to discuss things and did not rush me during my appointment. I had the blood tests, again quite promptly. The staff were all pleasant. Later on this afternoon the doctor rang whilst I was out and has just rung back to confirm that the blood tests were all normal. I am very impressed with my treatment today especially the doctor care and attention also all the staff I encountered were professional and friendly.
