The main Rheumatology department is based at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, where we have a dedicated Rheumatology out-patients department and day-case unit. Clinics are also held at the Metabolic Bone Centre at the Northern General Hospital.
We work closely with our 7 clinical nurse specialists, who have sub-specialities in biologic therapies, connective tissue diseases and adolescent Rheumatology. Our specialty therapy services are based at the Hallamshire. In-patient beds are available on wards O1, P3 and P4, also at the Hallamshire. On Monday lunchtimes, we have our x-ray meeting, run by the MSK Radiology team, followed by our weekly departmental meeting.
We hold a variety of clinical interests across the 11-strong consultant team and are able to offer training and experience over and above the basic curriculum requirements in:
Connective tissue disease, including close links with the Sheffield Pulmonary Vascular Unit for Pulmonary Hypertension
Paediatric & Adolescent Rheumatology, in conjunction with Sheffield Children’s Hospital
Sports & Exercise Medicine
Metabolic Bone Disease
Management of rheumatological problems through pregnancy, in conjunction with the Jessop Wing
