NASS celebrates the stars of AS care

Meet the winners of our 2018 Patients' Choice Awards. This is what excellence looks like.

We were delighted to welcome 200 guests, including 11 MPs who attended or were represented, to a reception at the Houses of Parliament on 3 December. The event, hosted by Pauline Latham MP, was an opportunity for NASS to announce the new Every Patient Every Time campaign, including the Aspiring to Excellence programme and an All-Party Parliamentary Group for Axial Spondyloarthritis. Thank you to Derek Thomas MP and Lord Campbell-Savours, who have agreed to co-chair the group. You can read about the campaign in more detail here.

We were also thrilled to be able to recognise the stars of AS healthcare with our second Patients’ Choice Awards.

Congratulations to all of our winners!


Nominations are now open for the 2020 awards.
