Many people find meeting others living with RA from their own localities to be of great benefit. NRAS groups are a great source of ongoing information and education. How else will you know about local services available to you? Wouldn’t it be nice to meet some of your rheumatology health professionals in a non-clinical setting? How would it feel to be able to influence future rheumatology service provision by being part of a strong patient voice in your area? NRAS groups aim to encourage better disease self management via informative guest speakers as well as offering opportunities to widen your social circle and activities.
As well as NRAS patient groups there are many other RA Groups that are run independently which NRAS are aware of but cannot account for their meetings’ contents etc.
All groups are listed within region, please click below on the region you live in to find your nearest group and see their next group meeting - if you are unable to find something near you or if you are interested in becoming an NRAS Volunteer Group Co-ordinator and would like information about setting up a group in your area then please call Clare or Kim on 0845 458 3969 or email the Volunteer Network at email@example.com.
