RA treatment results to be monitored

26th October 2011

Health Secretary Andrew Lansley has unveiled plans to begin auditing the results of rheumatoid and early inflammatory arthritis healthcare in the NHS.

He wants to monitor public healthcare in 11 extra areas of medicine, including these two types of arthritis, breast cancer and HIV. Speaking to the Royal College of General Practitioners annual conference in Liverpool, he suggested that doing this would allow for the publication of better-quality data on how these conditions are treated, allowing patients to make more informed choices about where to seek treatment.
