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.
In addition to NRAS groups there are other patient events/activities and meetings across the UK which we are able to signpost people to however NRAS do not necessarily have any direct input into such external meetings. Please look on the map or select your region to find your nearest group and see details of future meetings. 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 0845 458 3969 or email the Volunteer Network at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our groups are run by Volunteers and to protect their privacy we are unable to give out their personal contact details (unless otherwise stated on the group information). If you would like more information about any individual group please contact NRAS on 01628 823 524 or email@example.com and we will pass on your details to the group leader to contact you directly.
