“Dr. Kaye-Barrett is a world-renowned rheumatologist, who specialises in the treatment of chronic, treatment-resistant muscle and joint pain.”

Her CV is extensive but highlights include appearances on the BBC, appearing on numerous occasions in Tatler’s Top Doctors Guides, as well as many prizes including the multiple awards for her international work in places such as Kenya and the West Indies. Previous positions held include President of the Rheumatology Section of the Royal Society of Medicine (where she still offers her expertise as a trustee and member of council), Lead Rheumatologist at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, and Senior Lecturer in Rheumatology at Imperial College.

Today, Dr. Kaye-Barrett is the Medical Director of Chelsea Rheumatology Clinic. She is also the founder and Medical Director of RTMS London. She underwent extensive training in TMS, from the University of Mastricht and is a certified specialist and provider of TMS. She runs her own rheumatology clinic at The London Clinic,116 Harley Street, London, as well as providing some global outreach rheumatology training and practice in some instances.

Dr. Kaye-Barrett’s extensive experience with diverse patient populations (both paediatric and adult combined with her relentless clinical curiosity shapes her clinical work with patients. Innovative thinking and finding solutions when patients are at a loss (as evidenced by her appearance on the Diagnosis Detectives, (BBC 2, i-player) are key attributes of her as a physician.  Although she uses life changing pharmacological treatments (including anti TNFs/Biologics) when appropriate, Dr. Kaye-Barrett specialises  in holistic, non-drug treatment interventions for muscle and joint pain whenever clinically appropriate.  

Her latest position as the Medical Director of rTMS London further enables her to help patients who have not found drug treatments beneficial. Many chronic pain patients also have hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (hEDS), which she has long experience in managing. Dr Kaye-Barrett holds a postgraduate qualification from the University of Maastricht, and is the first rheumatologist in the UK to offer this breakthrough treatment to patients with chronic, treatment-resistant muscle and joint pain. rTMS is a novel and extremely safe treatment for chronic pain, which uses electromagnetic stimulation to support recovery from systemic neurological changes associated with chronic pain.
