Prof Chinoy firmly believes in the importance of clear, open communication with patients and sufferers of musculoskeletal conditions. Rheumatology involves looking at the bigger picture and taking into account many different symptoms throughout the body to come up with a meaningful diagnosis and treatment plan. His NHS practice at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust involves the review of patients with a variety of musculoskeletal complaints where they can also become involved in clinical trials and research.

Prof Chinoy's role is split between the hospital and The University of Manchester, where he is actively involved with research, medical education of medical students and doctors, and running of the Clinical Rheumatology MSc Programme. To date he has authored over 140 research articles in international peer-reviewed journals and regularly presents his team's research in national and international conferences.

As part of his NHS practice, Prof Chinoy sees general rheumatology patients with a variety of musculoskeletal issues. He also has a special interest in autoimmune inflammatory myopathy (myositis), connective tissue disease and psoriatic arthritis.

His clinical experience is important as patients are often concerned that they may have a rare or uncommon disorder, when the ensuing diagnosis may be something much more straightforward. Prof Chinoy has an excellent working relationship with other experts and can offer you a considered opinion about your musculoskeletal symptoms, joint injections, prescriptions and onward referrals where appropriate.
