UK Hypermobility Clinics

At most hospitals ‘hypermobility’ is dealt with under ‘rheumatology’ for adults, and ‘paediatrics’ for children though there may be also be rheumatology service where children are seen. The following addresses are of hospitals where there is an established multi-disciplinary service in hypermobility that has been agreed with the hospital, and where the hospital has given permission for the HMSA to advertise the service. Much is being done to encourage interest and support the development of other rheumatology departments around the UK. The HMSA wishes to be inclusive at all times, and invites all specialist services to add their details to this directory at any time by contacting the charity office.
