The British Society for Rheumatology is delighted to announce a new strategic partnership with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.

The new strategic partnership allows BSR to further develop its work with the Royal College, supporting clinicians and health professionals working in the rheumatology specialty to gain the skills they need to improve care for patients, across Scotland.

Ali Rivett, Chief Executive, BSR said: “I’m delighted that we’re establishing a new partnership with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow to help us maximise the impact and value of our respective activities. This will be facilitated through the appointment of a new BSR role, which will be the first time in our history that we will have a staff presence outside of London. Lauren Bennie will be based at the Royal College and have a broad range of responsibilities, including extending our educational programme and exploring how we can actively support our members across the devolved nations”.

BSR is the leading UK specialist medical society for rheumatology and musculoskeletal care professionals. BSR supports its members to deliver the best care at all stages of the care pathway, to improve the lives of children and adults with rheumatic and musculoskeletal disease.

Steve Graham, Chief Executive Officer at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, said: “This new strategic partnership with the British Society for Rheumatology is a welcome initiative that will help enable us to deliver our shared mutual interest to ensure the highest standards of care for patients by meeting the educational and professional needs of our membership.”

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow is the only Royal College in the UK that welcomes healthcare professionals across the range of medical and surgical specialties. The College is committed to inspiring, nurturing and supporting their diverse and inclusive community of over 14,000 members in their quest to deliver the highest possible standards of care.
