NRAS Comments on the ABPI report

by Garreth

RAising-the-gameCommenting on the report, Ailsa Bosworth, Chief Executive of NRAS said:

“This is a heavy hitting report, which underlines the significant challenges to be addressed if we are to improve outcomes for all rheumatoid arthritis patients across England. In particular, to ensure the disease is properly prioritised at the local level, it is clear that the rheumatology community will need to work closely with local commissioners. Evidence from the audit of Joint Strategic Needs Assessments, produced by local authorities, makes for particularly grim reading and it is my sincere hope this report will act a catalyst to bring about change.”
