Physical branch meetings are currently cancelled due to COVID-19. However there are virtual activities being run by some branches. Please contact your local branch for more information.

We hope you find the information on these pages helpful. Our team is working tirelessly to provide up to date advice in relation to the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic. Record numbers of people are now turning to NASS for support, and we hope to be here for everyone. Our helpline and advice service are only possible thanks to donations from people like you.

If you are able to make a donation to NASS today, we'd be so grateful.


NASS Leicester & District

Cost: £10 a month by standing order.

We are supportive and friendly and are always looking for new members.

Our branch is multicultural consisting of members from a variety of backgrounds and a fairly even number of men and women subscribe.

The branch enjoys support from Dr Moorthy, Consultant Rheumatologist at the hospital, and his team.

As an encouragement we offer a free initial session in the gym and hydro pool.

We meet every Monday at 6.30pm in the Leicester General Hospital main gym for stretching exercises until 7.30pm. We then move to the                  hydrotherapy pool just a few steps away until 8:30pm. Our exercises are carried out under the direction and supervision of a fully qualified physiotherapist from the hospital.

Please note that you must have a UK diagnosis of axial spondyloarthritis (Axial SpA) or ankylosing spondylitis (AS) to attend this branch.
