I am a Consultant Rheumatologist & Physician at Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust having
completed my Rheumatology & Internal Medicine speciality training in the East of England in 2013.
I undertook my junior doctor training in Swansea. Having obtained membership of Royal College of Physicians London (MRCP) in March 2007, I commenced higher specialist training in Rheumatology & General Medicine before joining Addenbrooke’s Hospital Cambridge to pursue clinical research in 2010. Same year, I achieved MRCP in Rheumatology too. I finished research in 2012 and joined Luton & Dunstable University Hospital as a final year registrar until was appointed in the current role. I was awarded Fellowship of Royal College of Physicians London in 2018 and appointed as Director of Research & Development in 2019. I was also elected to the prestigious Registers committee of national British Society of Rheumatology in 2019.
I am the lead clinician for award winning early arthritis service, research on biologic therapies and inflammatory arthritis associated lung diseases MDT service. I have been involved in more than 60 clinical trials utilising biological therapies for autoimmune conditions. My other main interests include early inflammatory arthritis including ultrasound use and metabolic bone health. Over the past five years, I have authored over 100 abstracts, presented at international conferences and published more than 25 papers in peer reviewed journals.
If you have painful joints, stiffness and/or joint swelling then you could have any one of 207 types of arthritis. I lead a national award winning early arthritis service
If you have any of the predisposing conditions such as psoriasis, uveitis/iritis, inflammatory bowel disease and you develop joint pain, it could be spondyloarthropathy. I lead on research in such conditions
If you are over 50 or younger with high risk factors such as chronic disease, steroid use or hormonal disorder, you will need bone health screening. I lead innovative metabolic bone health service
If you have longstanding back or muscle pain and there is diagnostic uncertainty, I can help you reach a diagnosis and formulate a management plan
If you have multisystem complaints e.g. rashes, ulcers, breathing problems with joint/muscle pain, it could be connective tissue disease. I lead a multi-disciplinary service and can help you

Dr. Nisar introduced himself, and confirmed that he had received a referral e-mail from My GP Dr. Patil, outlining my health issues. I explained my symptom's that I had a few weeks prior, he listen, asked various questions. He then went on to explain about the different types of Lupus etc. He arranged for me to have blood tests the next day. To help my immune system, he administered an injection, which targets specific immune cells. He spoke slowly & clearly and allowed me to ask questions, he did not rush the appointment. Once he has received my blood results, he will arrange for me to see him again, to discuss further treatment, if required. I was comfortable with Dr. Nisar.
