NASS is the only charity in the UK dedicated to transforming axial SpA (AS) care in the UK.
We want to ensure that every person with axial SpA (AS) receives timely diagnosis and effective treatment and care, is empowered to take decisions about their health, and feels part of a supportive axial SpA (AS) community.
For over 40 years we’ve been providing specialist support, advice and the most up-to-date information. We aim to empower everyone with axial spondyloarthritis (axial SpA) including ankylosing spondylitis (AS) to manage their treatment and to stay in control of their lives. We are driven to ensure that health professionals around the country deliver tailored and timely care to every patient, every time.
Once you get to know NASS, you realise that while axial SpA (AS) exists, our work will never be done. We simply will not rest until we reduce the current 8.5-year delay to diagnosis, and we will continue to fund research in seeking every possible way to help beat axial SpA (AS).
