The Primary Care Rheumatology Society (PCR) was set up in 1986 by a group of general practitioners with a special interest in Rheumatology.
PCR Society's aims are:
- To improve education in Rheumatology in general practice
- To set up relevant research topics
- To increase communication between hospital rheumatologists and other relevant health professionals, with the ultimate aim of improving care for patients with rheumatic disease
Currently, PCR has a steadily growing membership and has become an important source of advice, education, ideas and initiatives in Rheumatology in general practice.
