Rheumatology Service

Sheffield Children’s Hospital Rheumatology Service

The Rheumatology Service at the Sheffield Children’s Hospital aims to support children and families with all aspects of rheumatology care. In particular, we help you to achieve and maintain the best possible health and well-being throughout your lives.

Our team is friendly, approachable and aspires to deliver excellence in child and family-centred care.

The Rheumatology Service offers clinic appointments 5 days a week. In addition to consultant clinics, we have clinics run by our extended scope practitioners, clinics run by nurses and clinics run jointly by a nurse and a psychologist.

We have a large multi-disciplinary team whom all work together in order to provide the best, most appropriate care for our patients.

The team consists of consultants, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, a psychologist, a pharmacist and administration support. We also work closely with the Medical Day Care unit, where a lot of our patients are seen for various treatments.
