The Best Practice Awards reward excellence and showcase exemplary rheumatology services by promoting innovation and best practice across every aspect of rheumatology treatment.

Our Best Practice Awards celebrate innovative or particularly successful schemes that drive improvement in patient care.

After one of the most challenging years on record for the sector, we're shining a light on the outstanding efforts and achievements that rheumatology teams across the UK deliver.

Congratulations to our three winning sites! You can hear more about their work during the Best Practice Awards presentation at Annual Conference:
