We Deliver a Full Range of Rheumatological Treatments and Care

Rheumatology is the branch of general medicine concerned with the development, diagnosis and treatment of diseases that affect the joints, bones, muscles and connective tissue. Here at the North West Independent Hospital, we specialise in treating a wide range of rheumatological conditions.

Our Consultant Rheumatologists can treat patients suffering from many different types of musculoskeletal conditions, from complex inflammatory disorders to degenerative joint disease and soft tissue disorders. During every stage of your care program, you can expect the highest standard of care, whether you are receiving diagnosis or treatment.
