Why Papworth rather than Addenbrooks?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello everyone. I am a 50 year old female being tested for WG. Currently awaiting biopsy at Papworth hospital. I've heard there's a good vasculitis team at Addenbrooks so I'm wondering why I've not been referred there?

    You can get referred to Addenbrookes Vasculitus Centre of Excellence by asking your GP.

    The top two Vasculitus experts in the world are Peter Merkel based in USA and David Jayne based at .....Addenbrookes

    I have WG and would not go anywhere else, they have over 1,000 patients.

    A good contact is Stella Burns who works with David Jayne

    Good luck!
