Response from Worthing Hospital

We are sorry that you have a long wait to see a Rheumatologist.

We would like to respond to you personally so please do contact our PALS department who will be able to talk to you about this issue.

Some of our specialties do have longer waits than we would wish and we would be happy to talk to you about this issue in more detail.

PALS are a link for patients but we can arrange for a senior member of staff to contact you if you would prefer.

Please contact PALS in the first instance on palschichester@wsht.nhs.uk or 01243 831822.
