The UCLH Department of Rheumatology is a UK centre of excellence for clinical care, training and research.
The Centre for Rheumatology at UCLH is staffed by 15 consultants, clinical nurse specialists and one physiotherapy extended scope practitioner.

We have a large (over 30) and highly respected academic group led by Professor Isenberg. He runs a lupus clinic and clinicians from dermatology/renal/respiratory/haematology/metabolic medicine attend this clinic, as well as nurse specialists.

We provide a specialist service for both adult and adolescent patients with any rheumatological disease and we have close links with Great Ormond Street Hospital’s paediatric rheumatology service.
