Integrated Rheumatology Service 

  • About the Rheumatology clinic

    We work closely with the musculoskeletal service. Our team includes doctors, an osteopath, occupational therapist, dietician, podiatrist and nurse practitioners with specialist skills in various types of complementary medicine. We provide diagnostic techniques including imaging and blood tests and treat a wide range of rheumatological problems.
  • About the service

    The service is provided by experienced doctors. An individual treatment programme is designed, combining conventional and complementary medicine approaches.

    The aims of this service are to improve joint problems and associated symptoms, quality of life and general wellbeing, and allow reduction of conventional medication (where possible and appropriate).

  • What can we treat?

    • Osteoarthritis
    • Rheumatoid arthritis
    • Psoriatic arthritis
    • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and other connective tissue diseases
    • Ankylosing spondylitis

    Fibromyalgia is treated in the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia service.

  • Your appointment

    If you are unable to attend your appointment, please let us know at least 48 hours beforehand so we can offer your appointment to someone else. If you do not attend your appointment without telling us, we may refer you back to your GP.

    Following your treatment, you will be referred back to your GP.

  • Professional education and training

    The RLHIM is also a teaching hospital and from time to time other healthcare professionals may observe in outpatient clinics as part of a training course. We will always ask your permission for students to sit in during your consultation. You do not have to have students present if you would prefer not to.
  • Access to homeopathic remedies

    The Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine (RLHIM) no longer provides NHS-funded homeopathic remedies for any patients as part of their routine care. This is in line with the funding policy of Camden Clinical Commissioning Groups, the local NHS body that plans and pays for healthcare services in this area.

    Should you choose you will be able to obtain these medicines from the RLHIM pharmacy with a private prescription from your doctor, while other homeopathic pharmacies may also be able to supply the medicines. You can speak to your doctor or the RLHIM pharmacy at your next visit about this.

"The medicines given by Dr Fisher reduced the side-effects of the steroids my mum was taking. The homeopathic medication works well with the conventional thus reducing the side-effects. She feels a lot better thanks to this hospital"
