Dr Caroline Cardy

Consultant Rheumatologist


Specialises in

I have provided care to Worcestershire rheumatology patients since 2012 working as a consultant rheumatologist for the Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust. I am an experienced general rheumatologist and greatly value the importance of early diagnosis and treatment.

I qualified from the University of Oxford Medical School in 2002. Prior to my medical training I completed a BSc in Genetics at the University of Nottingham and a PhD investigating molecular aspects of Marfan syndrome at the University of Oxford. I moved to the West Midlands for my rheumatology specialist training which I completed in 2012 before being appointed as a substantive consultant at Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust.
