Hypermobility service 

Important service information

It has been decided to close the hypermobility service at UCLH to new referrals for a period of 12 months effective from 8 July 2019.

This decision has been taken due to increased demand that we are unable to accommodate. During this time we will take the opportunity to re-design services to increase capacity and improve patient experience.

GPs are asked to redirect any such referrals to other hypermobility services at this time.

The adult Hypermobility service is a tertiary referral consultant-led clinic. The service comes under the UCLH Department of Rheumatology. This one stop clinic provides advice on the diagnosis and management of patients with all suspected or confirmed hypermobility-related disorders (including Joint Hypermobility syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and Marfan’s syndrome). Patients will be given a precise clinical diagnosis together with advice on lifestyle and future management to be continued in their own community. Where appropriate, those patients with specific hypermobility-related regional musculoskeletal problems will be referred to UCLH or local musculoskeletal therapy or pain management services. For patients with suspected complex Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (excluding hypermobility type), Marfan’s syndrome and osteogenesis imperfecta we will assess and recommend genetic testing if indicated.

Conditions treated

  • Joint Hypermobility syndrome
  • Ehlers-Danlos syndrome
  • Marfan’s syndrome
  • Osteogenesis imperfecta
