Rheumatology (Adults)

The adult rheumatology department is located at Gateway E in the Nottingham NHS Treatment Centre on the QMC campus. We provide services in both general rheumatology conditions and specialised clinics for complex conditions. We regularly run joint clinics with the dermatology, renal, respiratory and ENT teams. We provide a Young Adult transition service which is run with our paediatric rheumatology colleagues.

There are consultant and nurse specialist clinics which are held daily. As we are part of a teaching hospital, we regularly supervise specialist registrars in training as well as teaching other doctors and medical students. The department works as a multidisciplinary team involving doctors, nurses, health care assistants , physiotherapists, occupational therapists, day case staff, and adminstrative team.

As part of the department, we actively and regularly participate in research studies. The doctor seeing you may approach you about this when you are seen.
