New Dedicated Lupus Clinic

Leeds Teaching Hospital - The Hibbs Lupus Trust

Last week we attended the official launch of the new dedicated lupus clinic room at Chapel Allerton Hospital, funded by Hibbs Lupus Trust.

Leeds Teaching Hospitals has one of the largest rheumatology clinics in Europe and cares for patients from across Yorkshire and beyond. It is also home to the UK’s only musculoskeletal research unit – the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre – where a number of researchers are looking at understanding lupus to improve care and treatment for patients.

It was fantastic to meet the teams who are involved in treating patients with lupus and to hear more about their exciting research projects. We also had a chat with some patients who are treated in the clinic and have some ideas about how we can support the lupus clinic at Leeds more in the future!

Thank you to everyone who has been involved in fundraising for this new clinic room. It will make a real difference to the care that clinical teams in the hospital can provide to patients with lupus, as well as help to progress their research programmes.

By making a donation, you can help us to provide support to people affected by lupus.

    That’s fantastic. I had no idea about this . How can somebody access this clinic if you are already under rheumatology in a different hospital. Would they be able to offer you more than what you are getting at an nhs hospital?
    I’m overjoyed that finally somewhere is specialising in this rotten disease .

    Could I have some information on how I would access this clinic please. I am currently under rheumatology at another hospital but unhappy with my rheumatologist and feel like they don’t listen to me at all.
