The Spondyloarthritis (SpA) SIG covers issues relating to the group of conditions, including ankylosing spondylitis and psoriatic arthritis. This SIG aims to keep all members up to date with a broad range of topics including early detection, assessment and new therapies.  It also covers research, guidelines and nationally relevant issues such as NICE guidelines and commissioning.
