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 have been involved in more than 50 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 90 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 was very thorough in his history, he listened patiently and then formulated an excellent management plan. This is something which I have been looking for a long time but had not found up until now. He was kind and compassionate throughout. I would highly recommend him to anyone not only because of his manner but also clinical ability.

Dr Nisar listens to me, understands me and considers my problems holistically. He is clear and straightforward about any diagnostics and possible diagnoses - all of which ensures that I understand. He is also charming, friendly and approachable.
