Hi my 26 year old son has been on humira for a few years now (He was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis and he is finding it very difficult to attend the hospital check ups, blood tests and consultant appointments and hold down a job. He works in north london and his hospital is in sidcup. My son is considering moving closer to work i.e north london and transferring to a hospital in that area so that he can get to his appointments with less time off of work. He has missed an appointment this month and his injections have been put on stop until after his next appointment at the end of August. Has anyone tried to change hospitals, did you get the funding? and how long did the process take? Without the injections of humira he wouldn't be able to work. So he is in a catch 22 situation. It is such a shame that young people that want to work are given such obstacles isnt it bad enough that they have to deal with this terrible disease without having to fight against the system as well!!!!
