Dr Tamir Malley

MBChB, BMedSci, PGDipClinEd, MRCP(UK)(Rheumatology)

Consultant Rheumatologist & General Physician

As a consultant rheumatologist, Dr Tamir Malley diagnoses and treats a broad range of musculoskeletal and multi-organ autoimmune diseases. He performs joint and soft tissue injections and aspirations to treat a variety of rheumatic conditions. Dr Malley also specialises in the investigation and treatment of rare autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases, and medically unexplained symptoms.

Dr Malley’s role as an acute and general internal medicine consultant principally involves diagnosing, stabilising and treating life-threatening and non-life-threatening medical conditions. He looks after patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings, delivering high-quality and personalised care.

As well as delivering evidence based and patient centred care, Dr Malley applies his expertise in a thorough, holistic and compassionate manner, ensuring the needs and wishes of patients are at the heart of the care he provides. He pays close attention to  patients’ cultural and health beliefs, as well as supporting them with the wider impact of their condition and treatment on their lives.

Dr Malley undertook higher specialty training with dual accreditation in rheumatology and internal medicine whilst working in the Thames Valley region, developing his expertise at the internationally renowned Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre (part of the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust). He was selected to partake in the one-year Chief Registrar programme – the Royal College of Physicians flagship work-based leadership programme – during his time at Wexham Park Hospital where he received the annual leadership award and gained formal recognition for his instrumental role during the COVID-19 response.

Since 2022, Dr Malley has been a consultant in rheumatology and acute and general internal medicine at the Royal Free Hospital in London. He jointly runs the lupus clinic and has established the rheumatology hot clinic – a rapid access clinic for patients with new and acute rheumatological conditions – designed to optimise the early recognition and prompt treatment of potentially damaging and organ-threatening diseases. He collaborates with specialists in oncology, as part of the immunotherapy multidisciplinary team, to treat cancer patients developing immune checkpoint Inhibitor-related rheumatic diseases. He provides education and training by organising and chairing the rheumatology postgraduate meeting; delivering bedside teaching to MRCP(UK) PACES candidates; through educational and clinical supervision of trainees; and as the rheumatology lead for a student cohort at University College London Medical School. He also maintains his interest in academia and research as a principal investigator participating in multi-centre trials.
