Subject: Re: UK Anti TNF therapy availability?
As I'm sure you are aware, if you are unhappy with the level of expertise at your current rheumatologist department you have the right to choose where to receive treatment. It's a legal right! I have attached the link to the NHS website on this matter, just copy the following and paste it into your web browser....
I am so lucky that my rheumy is one of the leaders in his field, he's seriously up-to-date on his stuff and often attends rheumy seminars and often discusses my case with other rheumy's as I have some complications with which medicines are considered safe due to having had chemo for breast cancer last year.
It is so important to feel happy to put your faith in the medical professionals. I feel blessed that I have a brilliant rheumy who I have been seeing since I was 9 years old (I'm now 32). My only concern is that it won't be long until he retires - although I have told him in no uncertain terms that this is not an option for him in any way, shape or form lol :-D
He is based in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire and his team of nurses are second to none.
