Improving patient care by promoting excellence in RA practice, education and research.

Latest Information

Following the cancellation of the 2020 event due to COVID-19, the RA-UK Council have looked at ways in which to deliver the same high quality educational events but in a safe and controlled environment. As such, we recently delivered our first online virtual webinar, which was hugely successful​

Planning for the 2021 Annual Scientific Meeting has been ongoing, and we are delighted that with the support of our sponsors and Faculty, we are now able to announce the dates! 

The plan is to have a face to face meeting with live speakers, symposia and debates. We are monitoring the situation carefully, and are taking advice from those in the industry. Should the Pandemic affect us again, we are already looking at ways in which to make the event a success on a virtual platform. 

At present we are currently confirming our speakers and putting the finishing touches to our exciting programme!

Hopefully, the event will go ahead as planned. We are blessed with the size of the lecture theatre at Sheffield City Hall, which allows for social distancing, and we will of course adhere to all guidance with staggered sessions and sanitising stations.
