Dr Richard Hull
MB ChB, FRCP, FRCPCH
I have been a consultant in the Portsmouth area since 1989, having trained in Birmingham, Aberdeen, the Royal Postgraduate Medical School, Hammersmith Hospital and Northwick Park Hospital, London.
I manage all forms of arthritis from inflammatory arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and juvenile idiopathic arthritis through to osteoarthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and hand, shoulder, knee and back problems.
I regularly do joint injections and other injections, as well as interpreting immunology tests, CT and MRI scans and assessing and managing osteoporosis. I compile medico-legal reports on instruction from solicitors and run the Wessex RCGP injection course for GP's. I also liaise closely with physiotherapists.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Richard Hull at Spire include:
Spire Portsmouth Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
I keep up to date by attending recognised courses and national and international professional conferences. I am also an examiner of the Royal College of Physicians.
