Our department specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of anyone with diseases of the musculoskeletal system, such as rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis, gout, lupus, and osteoporosis.
Most of our care is carried out on an outpatient basis.

How am I referred to a rheumatologist?

You can be referred by your GP, a consultant from a different specialty or by an allied health professional. If you are referred via the NHS eReferral Service you will be able to choose your appointment time. This also means you can see how long our waiting times are.

What facilities do we have at the rheumatology department?

For inpatients

Ward A7 is a specialist facility which is shared between rheumatology, haematology and dermatology and has 12 inpatient beds, including six single, en-suite rooms.

Day case facilities

Our two day-case units are also on Ward A7, where 10 patients can be treated in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere by our experienced nursing staff.

We’d encourage you, your relatives and carers to ask questions about your care, condition and medication so that you feel well informed.

The department has excellent support from other departments with patients benefitting from;

  • two hydrotherapy pools
  • on site orthotics service
  • MRI, CT and PET scans.
