About the London Rheumatology Centre

The past 20 years have seen a revolution in the treatment of rheumatic disorders, with advances in the fields of Diagnosis, Orthopaedics, Physiotherapy and Rheumatology.

Many general rheumatic conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, can now be brought under control if diagnosed and treated early. Conditions once considered ‘difficult’, such as low back pain, chronic shoulder problems and knee arthritis, are now able to be successfully treated.

At the London Rheumatology Centre, we have the means and expertise to provide the right diagnosis and the best medical advice.

The London Rheumatology Centre is a one-stop consultant led rheumatology diagnostic practice situated in the City of London. The clinic will provide a diagnostic and screening appointment, supported by full x-ray and MRI services.

Based at 31 Old Broad Street, a private diagnostic and treatment centre linked to the internationally renowned London Bridge Hospital, our staff and facilities include:

  • 4 Consultant Rheumatologists
  • 23 Orthopaedic Surgeons (with specialists in every area of Orthopaedics)
  • Fully equipped Physiotherapy Department
  • Sports Medicine Specialists
  • X-ray, MRI and Extremity MRI facilities

The Centre is supported by the medical facilities offered at London Bridge Hospital, which include Cardiology, Chest Medicine, Gastroenterology, General Surgery, Neurology and Acute Medical Care.
A consultant appointment can be made with the London Rheumatology Centre within 48 hours. (A GP referral letter is preferred, particularly for medical insurance purposes).

During the appointment, the consultant may also arrange for x-rays, scans or any other tests which might be required. We believe that in offering an immediate, consultant-led screening service we can provide patients with a full specialist-based diagnosis and management plan within days.

Depending on the Consultant Rheumatologist’s assessment, further treatment, such as medication or physiotherapy, can be continued either in the patient’s own medical centre or on-site, using the unique medical and orthopaedic teams at 31 Old Broad Street or London Bridge Hospital.
