Hello. Does anybody have experience of switching hospitals to one under another trust and do you know the best way to do this?
I've been under one terrible rheumatology department for three years and I've finally reached the limit of what I can take. I have somewhere else in mind that's not too far away.
Do I ask my GP to refer me and do I need to give a reason? I've heard of people doing this without problem but when I've read up on it the rules don't seem so straightforward.
If anyone has experience in this area I'd like to hear about it. Please don't ask me to try to resolve the issues with the current rheumatology department - it's been three years of hell and I am way past that. When doctors lose your trust I think it's time to move on!
