"Out patients"

About: St Helens Hospital

I can't recommend the rheumatologist highly enough, I had been in increasing pain for some 12 months when I attended clinic, but left the hospital virtually pain free. I was seen by the Dr quickly and on time, thoroughly questioned about my complex health problems, examined and given treatment it was wonderful. Two days after my appointment I was telephoned by the Dr herself and give results go my blood test and offered a choice of further treatment. This resulted in my visiting the hospital for injection twice within a matter of days, when I was treated promptly and on time even though this was short notice and at an extremely busy time over Christmas. I have just had a follow up visit and once again was seen on time by very helpful Dr, had X-rays taken and bloods all very efficient. Top marks all round, I don't say that very often.
