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 Portsmouth

Cost: £18/month

Formed in September 1990, the Portsmouth branch has excellent support and guidance from the NASS physiotherapists who allocate people between our four groups depending on their exercise tolerance levels. We opened our fourth group in October 2018.

Our group of 50 members are a friendly, caring group of people and we enjoy holding regular social events throughout the year.

We work closely with and are supported by the rheumatology and physiotherapy departments at Queen Alexandra Hospital under Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust.

We meet at the QA Rehabilitation Centre every Tuesday evening from 1700 to 2000 and on Thursday evenings from 1815 to 2000 at the same venue.

Social events held throughout the year include meals out, summer barbecues and volleyball. We look forward to seeing you there!

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