|Arthritis Research UK Policy Seminar on Personal Health Budgets|
Chaired by Professor Alan Silman, Medical Director, Arthritis Research UK, the seminar will focus on how any future implementation of personal health budgets may affect the clinical encounter, particularly in the context of musculoskeletal conditions, including inflammatory arthritis, osteoarthritis, back pain and multi-system autoimmune diseases.
