Rheumatology Unit

  • The Rheumatology Unit provides specialist clinics including an early access inflammatory arthritis clinic, inflammatory back pain clinic, connective tissue disease and vasculitis clinic and a combined respiratory clinic.
  • This service provides information and guidance to support you with your treatment. There is a dedicated team of doctors, nurses, pharmacist, occupational therapists and physiotherapists as well as access to podiatry.
  • Patients can choose to have their bloods monitored as part of their treatment at their local surgery. The service provides follow up appointments to ensure a patient's condition has not changed. If there are any condition changes, a patient will be seen by a doctor. Patients can contact the Rheumatology Advice line for advice if there are any condition changes between appointments.
