"rheumatology appointments"

About: Kettering General Hospital

I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2011, had to see either the consultant or nurse every 6 months, yet last year I think I only got to see the nurse ONCE , my last app I turned up for at corby I was sent away as they didn't have my notes, yet they obv knew I was coming . Not very Professional. I have since moved back home to Yorkshire & so far I've yet to see anyone , in fact a while back I even got a tx telling me to go for a blood test in Corby yet I informed them I was moving in Dec!!! Do they not take notice of what there told. I'm in pain , I've wrote to my local RA dept but still not seen anyone. It's pathetic
