We are currently writing a consultation response for NICE on access to rheumatoid arthritis drugs. We are looking for UK residents who have a DAS score below 5.1, and therefore don’t currently meet the criteria for biologics, and whose RA is not well controlled (really struggling, worried about work, etc). If this applies to you and would be willing to either provide us with a paragraph about your experiences and the impact this has had on you, then we would be really grateful if you could get in touch with us as soon as possible.
The deadline for us to respond to NICE is this coming Friday, 22 February, so we will need to obtain written comments and phone interviews in the next couple of days. To get in touch regarding your experiences, please contact our Government Affairs Manager, Jamie Hewitt, on firstname.lastname@example.org. Jamie would also be happy to speak to you on the phone - just send him an email with your number and he will call you back as soon as possible.
In addition, you can also complete the online poll that we are currently running on Health Unlocked as well.
Thank you in advance for your help.
