Thank you for visiting our website to find out how you can help support excellent rheumatology care and sign up to our pledge to help grow the rheumatology workforce.

We have pulled together a range of resources to help you to promote rheumatology both locally and in Parliament. 

  • Take the BSR rheumatology workforce pledge:
I pledge to support the growth of the rheumatology workforce by:

  • Advocating, at both local and national level, to grow the number of rheumatology consultants, specialist nurses, pharmacists, psychologists and allied health professionals in line with BSR’s People We Need campaign.
  • Working with patients, healthcare professionals, speciality medical societies and patient organisations to promote the value of excellent rheumatology care and fully staffed MDT rheumatology services in parliament.
  • Learning about the positive impact that fully staffed MDT rheumatology teams have on the timely diagnosis and treatment of people with rheumatic conditions.
Our pledge is informed by the experiences of healthcare professionals and patients, and endorsed by the National Axial Spondyloarthritis Society (NASS), the Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Alliance (ARMA), and the Primary Care Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Medicine Society (PCRMMS).

Email policy@rheumatology.org.uk. We will add your name to the website and promote this to the rheumatology community.

If you are unable to find a particular resource or if you would like us to draft specific correspondence on your behalf, please feel free to email our team and we will be happy to assist you.
