How the BSR will use your gift
- We will increase the public’s consciousness and understanding of RMDs and encourage early diagnosis and treatment to minimise the debilitating effects of them.
- Dispel the myths and make everyone aware of the facts:
- 10 million people in the UK have a form of RMD
- 200,000 people suffer from ankylosing spondylitis in the UK
- Three quarters of people diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis are of working age and there are 20,000 new cases in the UK every year
- We will continue to engage the public and campaign for RMDs to be continually high on the political and public agenda.
- Promote and nurture excellence in rheumatology
- Your gift will help all our clinicians and health professionals to receive the support, training and education they need to advance their knowledge, skills and practice.
- We will help to develop standards of care and health policy to improve services, and campaign for clinicians to be able to give patients the most effective treatments available.
