What is the process of a diagnosis?

Receiving a diagnosis can be a shock for some people. For others it can help them to finally have answers to symptoms that they have been experiencing. It’s important to take the time to process the news. As with any diagnosis you, your loved one and your wider family and friends may react in different ways. This is completely natural and people may need time to adjust. There is support available to help at this time, and as you go forward.
