Rheumatology

Who are we?

The service is staffed by a consultant, GP with special interest and specialist nurse.

What do we offer for patients?

We offer diagnosis and treatment with a smooth transition in and out of the local acute trust as necessary.

We take referrals from GPs and Physiotherapists where they are concerned that adult patients may have a widespread disorder such as inflammatory arthritis or a connective tissue disease.

 

We offer advice to GPs and allied health professionals and a patient helpline for those under regular follow up.

About your appointment

Your first appointment usually lasts about 30 minutes. Blood tests, scans or X-Rays may be ordered to be sent for diagnosis.
