Dr Daniel Fishman

Consultant Physician and Rheumatologist


I have been a Consultant Physician and Rheumatologist since 2001, undertaking NHS and private practice in all forms of inflammatory arthritis, connective tissue disease and soft-tissue rheumatism. I run the paediatric rheumatology service at Luton and see children of all ages in my NHS and private practice.

I have played a key role in the development of acute medical service in my NHS hospital, as well as developing both adult and paediatric rheumatology. I have held several senior positions in the Trust, as well as being Treasurer for the British Society for Adolescent and Paediatric Rheumatology in the past.

I treat all forms of inflammatory and degenerative arthritis with joint, tendon and soft tissue injections to patients of all ages.

I have performed hundreds of joint injections in my career, in both private and NHS practice.

I am the Clinical Director for rheumatology at Luton and Dunstable University Trust. I am Secretary for the East Anglian Rheumatology Society and Eastern Regional rep on the Executive Committee of the British Society for Rheumatology.
