Rheumatology Transition and Young Adult

Transition and Young Adult Clinics are held at Brunel Building Southmead Hospital. These are with Dr Nicola Minaur (Consultant Rheumatologist) and Elaine McCormack (Specialist Rheumatology Nurse).

Rheumatology Transition clinics are held 4 times a year for young people who are transitioning (moving) from the Paediatric Rheumatology clinic at the Bristol Children's Hospital to the Adult Rheumatology Service. 

These are with Dr Nicola Minaur, Elaine McCormack, and a Peadiatric Specialist Nurse. Transition Clinics are also held at the University Hospital Bristol (UHB) so young people can choose where they would like to be seen.
