Hi Folks.
I've been haring to go to the rheumy Clinic each week for my Methotrexate injections.
I got a call yesterday from the company that will be supplying my mtx straight to the house.
I just think it's a great service. Every three months they will supply my needles, sharps bin, gloves etc etc.
So much easier than having to go to the clinic. Parking there is terrible.
I'm just grateful that we have services such as this and wanted to share.
Lol
:D:D:D
I'm a happy chappy.

I'm going to the final clinic appointment at three o'clock today.
Woohoo
:lol::lol:

    Really pleased for you Tony, I've been having my meth delivered to home for 3 months now-it's so much easier than the hospital trek and searching for a parking space. As you say, we're really lucky to have the NHS and services like these free at the point of delivery. But I do have to admit doing it at home unsupervised the first few times was a bit un nerving :?

    So glad you are going to be able to do your MTX at home now Tony, it is a bind having the trek to hospital, although, I don't really mind for my treatment which can't be given at home anything that gives you a bit of relief you welcome.................Marie x

    It does save a great deal of time - I am not supplied with gloves because I have the metoject thing and you don't need gloves. That's a shame - I used to wear them when making meatballs. DD

    Thanks everyone. :D
    apparently the gloves aren't for me, they're for anyone else that had to do the injection for me. . Lol
    or as DD says, they're for when Janet makes meatballs :lol:
