The British Society for Rheumatology (BSR) is a UK wide membership organisation for health professionals in rheumatology. The BSR works to promote excellence in the care of people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal disorders and to support those delivering it involving patients and carers at every step. The BSR works to ensure that physicians and clinicians are educated and trained to provide high quality care. Our membership consists of clinicians looking after the whole of life, from children to adults and across the whole patient pathway.
We work hard to bring the best benefits, opportunities and knowledge sharing to our 2500+ members and across all job levels, whether they’re an experienced professional or just beginning their career.
Research and science are at the forefront of our work as a society and the work of our members. Whether it’s drug efficacy, clinical guidelines, academic conferences and more, we exist to innovate and drive improvements in patient care.
Rheumatology is a rapidly evolving and complex medical speciality within an ever changing healthcare environment. We work hard on behalf of our members to lobby policymakers, to raise the profile of the profession and ensure rheumatology services are protected.
