Joint Working Project

Arthritis Care in Scotland has secured funding to deliver a new service in Scotland to support people living with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in the Greater Glasgow & Clyde area. The Joint Working project commenced in April 2013.

Joint Working links closely with the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) service, within Scotland’s first Rheumatology Managed Clinical Network, in Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS area.

The project will provide support surrounding employment/employability which Arthritis Care Scotland and health partners have identified as a significant need for people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). 

The project seeks to support people with RA and related conditions to improve their overall health and wellbeing and quality of life by looking at ways of offering practical support and signposting. The project will identify support routes for people with arthritis to sustain and regain employment following diagnosis and work as partners with the VR unit, and support as required by working with employers.
