The independent consultancy was established in 2003 and Susan has developed a network of associate nurse experts. She has an interest in social enterprise and donated a significant proportion of her time to projects that set out to improve the standards of care for people with all forms of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Diseases.Susan has been committed to raising awareness of the needs of patients and has actively participated in projects that explore the true impact of chronic conditions such as those with inflammatory joint diseases (for example rheumatoid and osteoarthritis) and how to improve patient outcomes).

The aims of this website are to be:

  • A resource for healthcare professionals who have little experience of arthritis and wish to gain some preliminary information and identify professionally endorsed websites.

  • Information for patients who wish to know more about arthritis or wish to review the details on this website before considering whether further advice or support is needed.
