Integrated Services for Patients In Rheumatology (INSPIRE) is a joint initiative of the British Society for Rheumatology (BSR) and the Primary Care Rheumatology Society (PCR). It brings together BSR's clinicians and scientists and PCR's general practitioners with a special interest in rheumatology in order to promote best standards of care for patients with musculoskeletal diseases.
There are more than 200 types of rheumatic diseases, the most comon being rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, and about 10 million people in Britain have musculoskeletal conditions that affect their mobility and quality of life.
INSPIRE aims to inform everyone involved in healthcare provision of the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of these diseases, keep them up-to-date on government policy and advances in research, and open the lines of communication so that healthcare providers can share their knowledge and experience for the benefit of others.
