British Society for Rheumatology

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

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

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