Inflammatory disease


Dr Shah’s practice is centred around general rheumatology, although she also has a specialist interest in inflammatory disease. In 2011, she developed an ultrasound service for diagnosing and monitoring early inflammatory arthritis. She completed her undergraduate training at Nottingham University in 1999 before doing her General Medical training in the ‘Potteries’ district of North Staffordshire. She moved to the North West in 2002, where she carried out her Rheumatology Specialist training and completed a Masters in Rheumatology. She is now based in Altrincham, where she now lives with her young family. Dr Shah has a keen interest in medical education and has completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education. She has recently been appointed as Honorary Lecturer at the University of Manchester and has a research interest in postgraduate workplace learning. In addition to her clinical role, Dr Shah was appointed Foundation Programme Director in March 2010. She also plays an active role in supporting undergraduate training and student training within the hospital. Dr Shah is an elected member on the external relations committee for the British Society for Rheumatology. She has worked on the development of ‘quality metrics’ for commissioning services in rheumatoid arthritis, which are being rolled out nationally by the British Society for Rheumatology. Dr Shah also successfully established a rheumatology north-west regional audit committee. Results of their first audit have been presented regionally and submitted for national presentation. Dr Shah is happy to receive referrals and give telephone advice for any rheumatological problems and runs outpatient clinics at Trafford and Altrincham. Secretary: Maggie Corcoran on 0161 746 2395
