Hi Mel,
i lived in Woodgreen up to recently and was transfused at the Whittington hospital. The UKTS (United Kingdom Thalassaemia Society) office is also in North London and the group there is a fantastic one! You can contact Elaine Miller at the local office.
Anything I can help you with, please feel free to ask.

Hey Sydney Girl,
It surely is a small world. Now I am actually in Canada! I loved the shopping and independence that London offered though.

I was treated by Dr Wonke/ Dr Shah prior to coming here. The best part of whittington though was Emma prescott who is an absolute angel. She always took care of us no matter how busy she was.

Hoping that Mel is lucky enough to be seen there as well.
