Arthritis is a group of conditions that cause damage to one or more joints. The most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis, where there is gradual wear and tear of a joint. Some other types of arthritis are associated with inflammation of the joints. Arthritis eventually wears away the normal cartilage covering the surface of the joint and the bone underneath becomes damaged. This causes pain and stiffness in the joint.

How to be referred

? You can access treatment either as a self-paying patient, a privately insured patient or as an NHS patient. In all cases, just ask your GP to refer you to St Hugh's Hospital. Once you have been referred for treatment by your GP, if it’s convenient, you can book your appointment before you leave the practice.

If you need to consult your diary or would like time to consider your options, you will be sent an appointment request letter so you can book an appointment at a later date. As soon as you have attended your appointment , your treatment will proceed from there.
