Arthritis support needs improvement26th April 2012
Arthritis Care has said that GPs should be offered incentives to improve the care of patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
The charity said many continue to be “systematically and appallingly let down by the NHS” and it has published a damning assessment of services for more than half a million sufferers with many sufferers having to visit their family doctor more than three times before being referred to a specialist. It said there is a “lack of action” in the wake of calls for reform by the Public Accounts Committee and National Audit Office.
