The Rheumatology service at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB) sees people who have problems with their bones, muscles and joints.

We provide a fully comprehensive service for patients with various rheumatic diseases. A number of consultants specialise in some of the rarer conditions.

Rheumatology has access to therapy staff, and we work closely with other specialists for effective management of our patients.

Our nurse-led clinics include:

  • supporting and educating newly diagnosed patients
  • ongoing management of patients on biologic treatments
  • drug counselling

The QEHB department has a nurse telephone advice service, which is aimed at patients who have problems with their medication or experience an increase in their arthritis symptoms. Urgent appointments can be made when appropriate.
