Oxford Paediatric and Adolescent Rheumatology Centre (OxPARC) is the Regional Paediatric Rheumatology Unit for South Central England.

This site is to support our patients and families and facilitate shared care with local health teams, teachers and other professionals.

A patient's and family's knowledge and understanding of a long-term disease helps to improve outcome. We hope this site will help you find the answers you need and to support clinic appointments (before and after).

It is not possible to learn everything at once and everyone has different needs, so please dip in from time to time. If you have any queries, please contact us. We are happy to help.
