Our rheumatology department is one of the largest departments in the UK.
We diagnose and treat:
- arthritis causing inflammation, such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis
- lupus and other connective tissue diseases, such as vasculitis and myositis
- metabolic bone diseases, such as complex osteoporosis. These conditions make bones weak and more likely to break
- inflammatory spinal disease
Our team includes:
- advanced nurse practitioners
- clinical nurse specialists
- infusion suite nurses
- nursing assistants
- administrative and management staff
Our lupus team runs clinics with our cardiology, dermatology, kidney and neurology services.
We also provide a young adults rheumatology service to help with the move from children's to adult services.
We run a number of specialist clinics.
