About the Newcastle Rheumatology Practice

The Newcastle Rheumatology Practice aims to provide the best available private medical care for any rheumatological problem. Whatever your condition from troublesome backache to the potentially life threatening complications of connective tissue disease many symptoms can be managed in a visit or two. Others, such as rheumatoid arthritis, may entail long-term advice and careful supervision of complex therapies where continuity of care is particularly valued.

We are here to help; whether you require an urgent appointment, a quick response to an email query or advice over the phone. The Newcastle Rheumatology Practice offers appointments, on referral from your GP, at Nuffield Health Hospital. Appointments are routinely available on Fridays and Saturdays, and at other times by arrangement.
