Welcome to the rheumatology department at North Devon District Hospital. We provide high-quality care to patients with connective tissue diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis and many more.

We are a multidisciplinary team comprising of two rheumatology consultants and four clinical nurse specialists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and podiatry.

We treat over 3000 patients across the North Devon area with connective tissue diseases. We run clinics in North Devon District Hospital as well as satellite community clinics in Bideford and South Molton and Holsworthy
