PEOPLE suffering from arthritis in Hampshire are being encouraged to take part in a survey.

Arthritis Care, the UK’s largest patient support group charity for people with the condition, has launched a new England wide anonymous survey.

Called Arthritis Watch, it aims to gather evidence of changing NHS services – for both better and worse.

Siobhain McCurrach, area development manager for south England, said: ‘Monitoring what’s actually happening through Arthritis Watch is critical.’
