About Versus Arthritis

About Versus Arthritis

We are a new charity here to demand and deliver better with and for the 18.8 million people living with a musculoskeletal condition in the UK.

A huge challenge we share with you as health care professionals is pushing back against the sentiment that arthritis is ‘just a bit of pain’ or cannot be effectively managed. But we don’t accept this. Versus Arthritis will be bigger, bolder and more vocal in standing up against the condition.

An estimated 42 million MSK-related GP appointments take place each year in the UK. As the first point of contact for most people experiencing MSK pain, GPs play a pivotal role in their care; from diagnosis through to supporting self-management.

With over 60,000 GPs currently registered in the UK, that’s a big task. So, on 9-10 October 2019, Versus Arthritis will go big with GP education and open its doors to our very own 2 day MSK clinic at Europe’s largest primary care conference, Best Practice.  

Over the course of two days we will be delivering 10 hours of free MSK training which will be available to all conference delegates with the overall aim of helping you help your patients.

Our GPs and physiotherapists will be running free, interactive sessions on:

  • Core skills on the spine, knee and shoulder- with a focus on examination, making a management plan and communication top tips
  • Work and MSK health and first contact practioners
  • Early diagnosis of inflammatory arthritis
  • Common conditions in primary care including, fibromyalgia and gout
