Once you have been diagnosed with a rheumatic condition, you may not be entirely sure of the next steps. Your GP may recommend a particular pathway but you may also be interested in finding a private consultant rheumatologist of your own choosing and organising a referral to your chosen specialist. As a private consultant rheumatologist, Dr Stephanie Barrett has many years’ experience treating the whole spectrum of rheumatic conditions.

Defining Rheumatology

A private consultant rheumatologist deals in the treatment and management of conditions which fall under the medical speciality of rheumatology. Rheumatology covers diseases and conditions which affect the bones, the muscles and the joints. Common rheumatic conditions include rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, gout, fibromyalgia, ankylosing spondylitis and osteoporosis but this is just a small sample of the wide spectrum of conditions under this larger umbrella.

Your Referral to a Private Consultant Rheumatologist

The diagnosis of your rheumatic condition may happen at your GP’s surgery. Some GPs carry out the tests themselves, give a diagnosis and then refer you onto the specialists needed. However, in other cases GPs may suspect a rheumatic condition but make the referral to a private consultant rheumatologist or a hospital based rheumatology department. This is opposed to undertaking tests themselves. In rare cases with quick onset severe symptoms a hospital admission or immediate hospital-based care and tests may be necessary.
