Someone mentioned 'access cards' to us a little while ago on the helpline; something that they had used themselves and found to be helpful.
We are considering putting a link to this page on our website, but we link to a number of pages and it can be hard to decide who to put a link to, especially based on just one person's experience. I therefore wanted to see if anyone on here has come across these and if so, if they found them helpful.
Here is a link to their site:
The basic idea is that it is a card you can carry which demonstrates that you have a health condition, so might need extra support. As RA is not a visible condition, I can see that something like this could be helpful in certain situations, but it isn't free (it costs £15 for 3 years).
So, if you've used it, please let us know your experience and whether you'd recommend it. If you haven't, you may want to have a look at the site and see what you think, and again, should you choose to get one, we'd be interested in your feedback.
