Rheumatology is a branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of arthritis, rheumatism, and other related disease and disorders of the joints, muscles and tendons.

We offer outpatient clinics with Consultant Rheumatologists, supported by our Imaging Department for x-ray, ultrasound and MRI scanning. Your consultant also has access to other specialists within the hospital including our Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons, Physiotherapists and Radiologists, to work with and refer to as appropriate. Whatever your joint or musculoskeletal conditions, we can care for you from diagnosis through to treatment and rehabilitation.
