The importance of early diagnosis

I found this very interesting :)


How early is early..within the first four years of noticing something is wrong? Thought it was interesting about the dermatology relationship with the rhumey. Wish mine was like that. I begged my derm to olease call my rhumey and see if he could see me earlier. She said no he is too hard to get into so you will have to wait till your appointment. That was four more months of suffering. Hope mine is not too late.

I know its a real shame they don’t get together and start at grass roots, but I guess what is mentioned about working together is the ideal but not the norm yet. We can only hope the care pathways that enable this will be put in place soon but I’ve got a feeling its not worth holding our breath I’m afraid
