Motion text

That this House commends the work of the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS), celebrating its 15th anniversary on 17 October 2016 in supporting the 690,000 people in the UK living with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and 12,000 children living with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA); notes that arthritis is an umbrella term for many different types of joint disease and that most people assume that having arthritis is not very serious and that it is something we all get as we age, while RA and JIA on the contrary are severe autoimmune inflammatory diseases; thanks the Prime Minister for her longstanding patronage of the charity; and calls on hon. Members to support the campaigns of NRAS to ensure effective joint working between the NHS, public health, social care services and government agencies to result in improved outcomes for people with RA and JIA .
