The British Society for Rheumatology supports Health Committee report to provide effective care to those with long-term conditions, including arthritis

BSR welcomes the Health Committee report ‘Managing the care of people with long-term conditions’ published earlier this month. The report comprehensively describes the need for widespread reform to enable high quality care planning for people with long-term conditions, such as arthritis, across all health settings including at home, in hospital and in specialist care.

The report follows a major inquiry in which BSR submitted evidence to the Health Committee. Here BSR recommended that services for rheumatology patients should be maintained across all settings and cannot simply be moved into the community. You can read more about BSR’s thoughts on the report here.
