Personal Profile

Dr Hogarth graduated from the University of Liverpool Medical School in 1989 and moved to London in 1992 to commence Higher Specialist Training in Rheumatology in The North West Deanery (Central Middlesex, Hammersmith, St Mary’s and Chelsea and Westminster Hospitals). She was appointed as Consultant Rheumatologist to Ealing Hospital in 2002 and in 2011 was elected to the Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians London. 

Dr Hogarth runs a busy Rheumatology Service at Ealing Hospital treating all types of arthritis and soft tissue pain. She runs specialist clinics in early arthritis, osteoporosis, and inflammatory back pain and is responsible for day-case admissions for patients requiring intravenous therapies.  She also supervises a one stop joint and soft tissue injection clinic.  Dr Hogarth works closely with General Practitioners and Commissioners to support and develop musculoskeletal services and improve the patient pathway by providing shared and open access care for patients with chronic conditions. She has a Postgraduate Certificate in bone density DXA Reporting and leads the Fracture Liasion Service at Ealing Hospital which aims to ensure all patients with a fragility fracture are treated in line with Royal Osteoporosis Society standards.   She has  also been involved in developing a one stop “tingling hands service” to rapidly identify and treat patients with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

She has practised at The Clementine Churchill Hospital since 2007 and the Syon Clinic since 2012 and provides an opinion for all common Rheumatological disorders.  A substantial proportion of her referrals come from other Consultant colleagues, emphasising her commitment to multi-disciplinary working and the respect in which she is held. She has monthly meetings with physiotherapists and occupational therapists and has implemented combined clinics with Orthopaedic Surgeons.  She has weekly meetings with a Consultant Radiologist with an interest in musculoskeletal disease to review radiological investigations.

Dr Hogarth developed an interest in research early in her career and was awarded a B.Sc. Honours Degree in Medical Cell Biology. She has subsequently been involved in both clinical and laboratory-based research. She has carried out clinical trials investigating the effect of nutritional supplementation in the elderly and febuxostat as a treatment for gout, as well as studies assessing autonomic function in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, and the use of inflammatory markers as a guide to disease severity (as published in peer reviewed journals). 

In 1993, she was awarded a prestigious Medical Research Council Fellowship which led to the award of a PhD Degree. Her thesis was laboratory-based and involved the identification of genetic markers of susceptibility to systemic lupus erythematosus.

Since being appointed as a Consultant Rheumatologist, she has concentrated on education and teaching at both Undergraduate and Postgraduate levels.  She is an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at Imperial College School of Medicine and is the Rheumatology lead for Undergraduate Teaching at Ealing Hospital. She is involved in recruiting patients for clinical trials and the BSBR National Register which monitors the safety and side effects of new biological treatments.
