Nuffield hospital in Oxford. Any one else been there?

Postby JemmaB88 » Mon Jul 18, 2011 5:44 pm

Hi guys,

Well I booked my appointment this morning. I am going on the 8th August. I am just wondering if anyone else has seen the Rhumy dept there? I had an arthrogram done a while ago so I know how to get there etc. But I was wondering if anyone else had seen the docs there. I am just panicking for nothing I am sure. I guess I am just worried that I will be told its all in my head. I hope it isn't!

Cheers,
Jem

I haven't been to the one in Oxford, but a few years ago I went to the one in Derby for a psychie-assessment. It was very clean and smart and the staff we spoke to were very polite, with a warmth to them. I saw a psychiatrist there and he did a lot to make sure I was as relaxed as possible, listened to everything I said, and most importantly, treated me as a person.

Hopefully when you go, you'll have a similar experience. As for it being in your head, a lot of us have had that said to us :tongueout: :tongueout: But with the number of people being dx'd there has to be something more than it being in all our heads :facepalm: :facepalm: The docs that have that approach to things tend to be older ones who seem too set in their fossilised ways to accept that there are other ways of thinking :swear1: :swear1: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: you have a decent rheumy who listens properly :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:
