HCA at The Shard Outpatients Centre offers world-class treatment, utilising experts in their respective fields, cutting-edge diagnostics, and pioneering treatments to assess, diagnose and ultimately treat a range of conditions in rheumatology.

With our world-leading rheumatologists and pioneering diagnostic facilities, alongside access to treatment via London Bridge Hospital you benefit from the best treatment and patient experience.

General Rheumatology

Our general rheumatology practice is broad, covering a range of musculoskeletal conditions. This includes conditions from rheumatoid arthritis and connective tissue disease through to inflammatory and soft tissue disorders, which affect ligaments, muscles and intervertebral discs.

Advances in radiography and scanning technology allow us to assess pain points, recommend the best course of treatment and offer effective pain management for your condition.

We offer outpatient appointments for all musculoskeletal conditions at HCA at The Shard, with additional treatment available at our sister hospitals in London.

Occupational Medicine

Occupational medicine focuses on health in the workplace, identifying the means to prevent injury and helping with rehabilitation if injury occurs.

We take a multidisciplinary approach to occupational rheumatology. Our consultants utilise their extensive experience in work-related musculoskeletal conditions, and work closely with therapists and other specialists in the field to deliver a comprehensive and effective treatment plan.

Sports Medicine

If you have a soft tissue rheumatic disorder caused by exercise, our specialists at HCA Healthcare UK’s new Outpatients & Diagnostics Centre at The Shard can help.

These rheumatologists have high qualifications in sports medicine, and they work closely with other clinicians and physiotherapists in our sports medicine team to assist in recovery. This aims to help you return to exercise and prevent further injury.

At HCA at The Shard we strive to arrange appointments with consultants as soon as possible. This can be on the next or even same day as when you call. Throughout your treatment you will be in contact with leading specialists from London’s top teaching hospitals.

In some cases, diagnosis and treatment can be completed on the same day, reducing your wait for treatment and meaning your recovery starts sooner.

We use leading innovations in diagnostic technology and treatment, particularly in terms of pain management, scanning and radiology to assist with effective diagnosis and treatment.

Your treatment and care are tailored to your specific needs. This personalisation is intended to give you peace of mind. Safe in the knowledge that our work aims to yield positive results; successful treatment and effective recovery, this can allow you to get back to a life free of pain and discomfort as soon as possible.
