"I have attended many appointments ..."

About: Royal National Hospital For Rheumatic Diseases

(as the patient),

What I liked

I have attended many appointments at RNHRD ("The Mineral Hospital") as a result of my Ankylosing Spondylitis and have always been very pleased with the service all the staff there provide. I have attended courses for AS run by the physiotherapists, appointments with my consultant's team and injections into joints of steroids.

What could be improved

Sometimes there is quite a long wait after the time of the appointment to see the consultant's team but it is better to be given the time during the appointment, when it is required, rather than have an appointment rushed.

Anything else?
