In concordance with the NHS Patient Feedback program, we adopted the same approach which has been designed to support the spread of great patients' experiences. Such feedback from patients is used also to improve services. We believe that Patient Feedback is important not only to hilight the negatives but also to support the spread of great approaches and improve services. The service provided by Dr. El Miedany's team at the NHS was rated as excellent by the patients on the NHS patients' choice website. Kent CCG chose the team also as the best secondary care rheumatology service in the county. In harmony, the private patients' feedback has been absolutely positive. The one stop service style carried out in both the NHS and privately, implementing recent approaches such as musculoskeletal US, nerve conduction testing as well as US guided procedures carried out in the same day of assessment and helping patients to feel better within a short period, has attracted several patients to Dr. El Miedany's clinics both in the NHS and privately. Statistical analysis in the year 2014, revealed that the number of patients seen in Dr. El Miedany NHS clinics was double the national average with new:follow up ratio of 1:1.79.
