    About

    Dr Colin Tench a well-respected Consultant Rheumatologist with HCA Healthcare at London Bridge Hospital, along with an NHS post at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. He has vast experience in all areas of general rheumatology but his clinical interests include systemic lupus erythematosus, inflammatory arthritis, gout and fibromyalgia.

    He was awarded his Medical Degree from Cambridge University and completed his training in Rheumatology at University College London Hospitals and the Hammersmith Hospital. He is heavily involved in research, particularly into the effects of aerobic exercise on fatigue and sleep quality in Lupus. Dr Tench also assisted in postgraduate medical education and is the Royal College of Physicians Tutor and Programme Director for Foundation Training at St Mary’s Hospital, London.

    It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.
