Our Best Practice Award winners showcase some of the most innovative and exemplary services in rheumatology. 

From digital tools to help navigate the pandemic to new pathways to support prompt treatment for giant cell arteritis, there’s lots we can learn from our winners. We’ve spoken to each winning site to find out more about their projects, why they’ve implemented these changes and how their work is improving clinical practice. Have a read through these winner blogs to see whether you can pick up any tips and ideas to implement for your own service.
