Please read - Urgent statement from NRAS

We’ve had many, many discussions in the office and with our medical advisors etc. about COVID-19 as I’m sure you’re not at all surprised about.

As you will all be aware those with immune mediated conditions like RA are more at risk of contracting viruses anyway so it is only wise to take extra precautions until the spread of coronavirus can be brought under control.  Even if you are feeling well and showing no symptoms it is prudent to avoid gatherings of people if they are not absolutely necessary. Therefore NRAS has advised that all group meetings should be cancelled until further notice. While we appreciate this is not ideal we do feel as a health charity we must lead by example and we certainly do not want to put any of you at risk of catching COVID-19. Already we are seeing medical conferences being cancelled as we also have an obligation to keep our already overworked and stretched health professionals safe. Many nurses and consultants are already being required to support their colleagues in other departments to handle any outbreaks in their hospitals.

Please do continue to check our website for up to date information as to when local group meetings will reconvene.

Warmest regards

Clare Jacklin, Chief Executive
