British Society for Rheumatology is the UK's leading specialist medical society for rheumatology and MSK professionals.

Our members cover the entire rheumatology specialty – from those at the beginning of their career to the most senior consultants, academics and health professionals in the multidisciplinary team. Together, they form a powerful voice for paediatric, adolescent and adult rheumatology in the UK.

We support them through their careers, allowing them to progress, collaborate and innovate so they can deliver the best care for patients, improving the lives of children and adults with rheumatic and musculoskeletal (MSK) disease.
