Dr Joanna Robson



I qualified from Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, including an intercalated PhD in Neurogenetics. My house and SHO jobs were completed in East London before joining the Oxford Deanery Registrar rotation. I completed an NIHR Clinical lectureship at the University of Oxford focused on clinical care of people with Vasculitis and research projects in outcome measurement.

Areas of interest

I have a specialist clinical and research interest in vasculitis (e.g Giant Cell Arteritis, Large vessel vasculitis, ANCA associated vasculitis) and connective tissue diseases (e.g. Lupus).

We are an NHS England specialist centre for CTD and Vasculitis and I run the regional MDT for approval of Tocilizumab in people with GCA. I participate in combined clinics and clinical meetings with colleagues from respiratory, dermatology, ophthalmology and obstetrics, and support patients with CTD or vasculitis transitioning from paediatric care at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.

I am the principle investigator for registry and interventional trials for people with vasculitis at UHBristol. I am a Consultant Senior Lecturer at UWE Bristol, with an interest in health related quality of life in rare rheumatic diseases. I lead the international development of a patient reported outcome measure for ANCA associated vasculitis (the AAV-PRO), giant cell arteritis (the GCA PRO) and a PROM for people using glucocorticoids (the Steroid PRO).
