    The London Rheumatology Clinic is a multidisciplinary integrated clinical service focused upon the diagnosis and management of rheumatological disorders ranging from:

    Biomechanical and bone problems

    Inflammatory diseases affecting the musculoskeletal system from young to old age

    Arthritis is pain, swelling and stiffness in a joint. Rheumatic diseases are disorders of the musculoskeletal system that may involve arthritis.

    These diseases are common and approximately 15% of patients on an average GP's list have an arthritis related condition.

    They can cause significant loss of function and quality of life, unless they are managed by a multidisciplinary team.

    Although joint pain is a feature of most rheumatic diseases, these disorders may present in different guises, with other symptoms, and to a variety of specialist clinics ranging from dermatology to genitourinary medicine.

    They can affect all ages and both genders; inherited conditions and multisystem inflammatory arthritis can start from birth.

    The aim of the London Rheumatology Clinic is to provide a quick diagnosis and holistic management of all musculoskeletal diseases; from young to old age.
