Next year’s conference will be held in the exciting city of Manchester. While we're planning for a live event in 2021, we’ll have contingencies in place for delivering a virtual conference and will keep our website updated with information on this. 

The UK’s foremost gathering of leading rheumatology professionals, this fantastic three-day event is full of opportunities to learn, share and network. You will:

  • Join over 2000 delegates at the UK’s biggest rheumatology conference designed for the entire multi-disciplinary team 
  • Learn from experts in the field about the latest developments in rheumatology and expand your knowledge
  • Experience three days of cutting edge research, unrivaled networking, plus posters, symposia, exhibitions and more
  • Wind down with colleagues over drinks, nibbles and live entertainment at a number of our free to attend social events
  • Take part in our popular healthy-living activities
  • Earn CPD credits

We'll be carrying over some of our brilliant sessions from the 2020 programme so for next year would particularly welcome submissions on the following areas related to COVID-19:

  • The science of COVID-19

  • Registry and other data on the epidemiology of COVID-19 and the management of patients

  • Rheumatology involvement in post-COVID-19 treatment

  • Changes in service provision (including virtual consultations)

  • Impact on clinical staff (which could include aspects of mental health and effects on training)

Session proposals on other topics are possible, but as there are only a small number of session slots the available priority will be given to sessions presenting significant new data and information from the last 12 months.
