"What I think of Rhematology Department at CMH."

About: Central Middlesex Hospital

Anything else?

My mother has always felt very safe and reassured in the care of this team. The staff in this department are all caring, helpful and friendly. The specialist care provided by the Rheumatology team is one of the very highest standard. My mother has been attending the clinic for many years, and she has been under the excellent care of the same consultant the entire time. Her condition is regularly reviewed, and much consideration given to the best course of treatment. Her consultant is very careful to consider her whole medical condition, as he is aware that other seemingly unconnected symptoms could be linked to her arthritis. I have always felt very positive about the care we have received over the years, and I am confident that my mother has benefited from the best treatment available. The Medical Day Care staff are all very professional and very helpful. If this department was to closed down, it would be a tragedy for the many patients who depend on it. Having to adapt to a new team, in a less personal environment, would have a detrimental effect on the progress of its many patients. Most importantly, the top-class expertise and high standards of care which we benefit from at CMH cannot be replaced.
