Rheumatology

We have rheumatology teams based across both Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells hospitals, who work hard to deliver high quality care to our patients with joint problems and other related musculoskeletal conditions.

The team runs outpatient clinics and operate as a multi-disciplinary team where consultants, doctors, specialist nurses and others healthcare professionals, including physiotherapists, occupational therapists and rheumatology practitioners, offer a general rheumatology service as well as an osteoporosis service, working with administrative staff to achieve the best possible outcomes.
