"The wait for TNF drugs to be dispensed is..."

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

Three months , long waits to see nurses for scoring etc, back and forth and now been told it's going to be another 2-3 weeks! I am so poorly with my inflammation of joints that I feel like giving up! It's not fair to make patients wait for much needed treatment. The nurse told me there would be a delay because they were busy!
