Gathering in Scotland

We were delighted that one of our three conferences in 2016 was organised by our amazing Scottish Ambassadors. The first Gathering in Scotland took place at Forth Valley College on Tuesday 4th October 2016.

Our 2018 conference takes place on: Tuesday 17th April 2018 at Stirling Court Hotel (FK9 4LA) with key speaker Professor Iain McInnes (Professor of Experimental Medicine and Rheumatology at the University of Glasgow). As our NRAS Patron in Scotland, we are so pleased that Professor McInnes can join us on the day. 

A range of further interesting presentations by:

  • James Dale, Consultant Rheumatologist (NHS Lanarkshire), on living better with RA and looking after the whole person
  • Mohini Gray, Reader in Rheumatology and Honorary Consultant Rheumatologist (University of Edinburgh and NHS Lothian), on RA, depression and anxiety
  • Representatives of NRAS – find out more about our services and take away a range of helpful leaflets
  • Take part in a ‘market place’ of exhibitions, practical demonstrations, scientific displays and information points
  • Lots of opportunities to learn more about RA, ask questions of the experts, exchange news, views and experiences with all present
