Rheumatology Connect App
Helping you to better manage your condition at home
Rheumatology Connect is one of the first apps of its kind that connects patients with health and care professionals from their own hospital's Rheumatology service.
It will help support both newly and longer term diagnosed users by providing regularly updated expert advice and information from the Trust's Rheumatology team in written and video format.
Users can benefit from:
- Easy to understand videos covering diagnosis, medications and much more
- Contact details for the hospital's Rheumatology Team, clinics and treatments
- Signposting to Rheumatology Charities
- Access to virtual appointments
This app was co-designed by Dr Kirsten Mackay, Specialist Rheumatology Nurse Rian Penford, the Rheumatology Department, existing patients and developed with the Trust’s partner Health and Care Innovations (HCI):
“The Rheumatology Connect App is designed to improve the way patients receive information on their condition, and communicate with the Rheumatology department. It brings all the information you need into one place and ensures help is never too far away."
