Ailsa Bosworth NRAS Founder & CEO Awarded MBE in New Year's Honours

In 2001 Ailsa launched a brand new patient organisation offering support for those living with RA and campaign for improved care and access to treatments. Who knew that 15 years later her amazing fortitude, passion and commitment to the cause, despite suffering so badly from RA herself, would be recognised in such a public way. Congratulations to Ailsa from all at NRAS. We are all so very proud to work for such a remarkable organisation and yours and others like you living with RA inspire all of us to continue to fly the flag and be the voice of those with RA in the UK.

  • Such a wonderful person <3 !! I am overwhelmed by this woman offering support to people who stuggle with RA. We all need to love and support eachother with this disease.

Her dream of people helping people has made a big difference in my life.
