Connective Tissue Disease Vasculitis Service
There are dedicated clinics at Southmead Hospital Bristol for new and follow up patients.
We have experience in management of all autoimmune connective tissues diseases such as:
- SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus)
- Scleroderma (systemic sclerosis)
- Inflammatory muscle diseases (myositis)
- Sjogren’s syndrome
We take referrals from GPs and other hospital doctors (tertiary referral) for the more complex cases requiring high level expertise, such as inflammatory muscle disease, systemic sclerosis, and vasculitis.
Combined clinics with other specialist centres and specialties including Respiratory medicine (interstitial lung disease) and Royal Free Scleroderma service for complex conditions.
