Care and support for people with RA and their carers

NRAS has launched a new survey to investigate the experiences of care and support in England for people living with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and their carers. We want to know what types of care and support are needed for people with RA, whether these needs are being met properly, and what patients’ views are about the Care Act 2014 reforms. The results of the survey will eventually be published as a briefing paper. The survey closes at midnight on 09 October. To take part please follow the link:

  • I live in Scotland and would've liked to know what you're asking even though I'm not eligible. However the survey kicked me out. A good idea to be more inclusive in future?

  • Hi Cathie, yes unfortunately with this survey we are particularly focusing on the care system in England, as the care systems in the rest of the UK are very different. Please be assured that it is something we will look at in the future. In the meantime, if you wish to see a copy of the questions we are asking, please email me at and I can send them across to you. We will announce the results of the survey in due course.

    Best wishes
