Hi, my name is Sharon and my 2 year old was diagnosed with arthritis last year. I am looking for help with regard to the treatment he is receiving as I do not think it is good enough but don't seem to know where to turn.
Problems started with 2 local hospitals closing to make way for a new hospital opening but the opening of that hospital did not go to plan so it has been a very slow process. My Consultant has problems getting lists for steroid injections that my son really needs but due to hospital policies these lists are not coming quick enough.
He had his first lot of injections in August last year but the injections to his ankles wore off after 6 weeks and I am still waiting for the next lot. I have no idea what long term effect this will have and would like to try and get a private consultation for him but cannot find anywhere that does it.
Any help would be appreciated.
