Appreciation
Of Urgent
Referrals

If you advise us that, in your clinical opinion, your patient needs to be seen urgently, we will do all we can to move existing appointments to ensure they are seen as soon as is possible. Our Practice Manager sees it as her personal challenge to make the scheduling changes necessary to ensure that urgent cases are seen quickly.

Why

why refer to arthritisCARE
why refer to arthritisCARE

Between us, we have many years of experience, not just in rheumatology, but also in general medicine, with some of us even having spent time as General Practitioners in the past. Why is this important? Because it ensures that we keep in mind your patient's “whole person” needs - not just limiting our focus to attending to your patient's disease and physical symptoms.

We highly appreciate the importance of keeping in close contact with you as a key partner for your patients' ongoing support. You need to be aware of what is going on for your patients' care from the arthritisCARE team and you are encouraged to contact us at any time with questions on your patients' behalf.

As there are several Rheumatologists at the arthritisCARE practice, we benefit from being able to turn to each other for advice. In turn, this is really helpful for your patients if they come to us with a particularly complex set of symptoms. It’s a bit like having a rheumatology brains trust in-house to work on the best treatment plan for your patients!

We also offer both female and male Rheumatologists, as we appreciate that it is important that your patients have a choice about who they meet with to discuss their own condition and treatment options.
