Peer review is not only beneficial to patients, but also to participating members from all disciplines in terms of mutual learning and professional development. Though there are overlaps, e.g. with GiRFT, peer review has a different role and is seen to compliment such projects.
We have been promoting participation in peer review in rheumatology over many years and are delighted to see that peer review is now taking part in much of the UK.
We are particularly keen to continue to promote peer review activity amongst our members by providing a unique opportunity for those who wish to gain experience of high quality peer review in other regions where this process is well established.
