"newbie to rhumatology"

About: Wrightington Hospital

As quoted, I am a newly diagnosed RA patient of the department. I have been extremely impressed with how I've been treated and involved in my treatment. I have been given every opportunity to discuss my treatment with the team. They have answered my questions with candour and honesty. The department has a holistic approach and I feel that in house communication is very effective. Although I was surprised at the diagnosis I know that I am in good hands .

Thank you for your positive feedback in respect of your attendance at the Rheumatology Department at Wrightington. It is always appreciated when we can share the recognition of good practice and effective communication for our patient, and highlight the holistic team approach that is so important. I will be sure to pass this on to the Rheumatology Department.

Kind regards
