Rheumatology clinics

We run outpatient clinics in TAIRU, Torbay Hospital (see maps). Outpatient clinics are also held at Newton Abbot Hospital, Paignton Hospital, Teignmouth Hospital and Totnes Hospital. At your first appointment you will be seen by a doctor and at subsequent clinic appointments your reviews may sometimes be undertaken by one of the rheumatology nurses.

Rheumatology Allied Health Professions

The Rheumatology Team is multi professional and includes therapists from other professions specialising in rheumatology:


Information about the service is available on our Osteoporosis page.

Patient group for people with Rheumatoid Arthritis

We have a long standing patient user group for patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The group meets approximately twice a year to discuss our services and make suggestions about how we can improve. The group can also form a useful link if you are newly diagnosed and need to hear first-hand about getting the best out of the NHS.

Support videos

To help you to benefit fully from our services, we have prepared some videos that will provide support to you and will be a point of reference whilst you are taking the drugs we use in our service. Your specialist will point you to the videos that are appropriate for you. View our videos.
