Providing one clinical voice

Our members represent the entire profession - from 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.

We support our members throughout their careers to progress, collaborate and innovate.

What we do

We are the UK's leading specialist medical society for rheumatology and musculoskeletal professionals. We support our members to help deliver the best care for their patients, in order to improve the lives of children and adults with rheumatic and musculoskeletal disease.
