Our rheumatology team runs clinics at Southmead Hospital, Cossham Hospital and Yate. We also run clinics remotely (either virtually, via telephone or via video calling software).
We aim to offer diagnostic, treatment and ongoing support services to help you to manage your condition. We are a patient centred, multidisciplinary team. Our team includes medical, nursing, physiotherapy, pharmacy, psychology and occupational therapy professionals. We offer general rheumatology services as well as specialist services for people with osteoporosis, connective tissue diseases, and ankylosing spondylitis. We also run a transition clinic, which offers specialist support to young adults and their families moving from children’s to adult rheumatology services. We have an active patient representatives group, who are involved with helping with our service development and research.
