Scotland NHS Humira and waiting times

Posted , 3 users are following.


i am on weekly injections and live at the moment in wales uk and i am thinking of moving to the highlands in Scotland (i cope with the cold up there better then the damp weather in wales).

how difficult will it be to see a Gastroenterologist consultant and get the humira, would there be a long wait to see a consultant, or will they just continue with out a delay by transferring records?

I am on humira for crohn's and Ankylosing spondylitis and see a rheumatologist and the 2 consultants prescribe humira jointly so to justify it easier to the powers to be and bean counters

Thanks for any info.
