"Simply for Me" Patient Support Programme

MSD


Summary of work

Tens of thousands of patients in the UK suffer from seriously debilitating auto‐immune diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) and Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA). These conditions can physically disable patients thereby dramatically impacting on their quality of life. 

Anti-Tumour Necrosis Factor (anti‐TNF) drugs have been successfully used over the past 10 years to transform the lives of these patients. Along with the increasing use of these medications has come the development of patient homecare services to accompany the medication. Our aim was to improve this home care service to measurably enhance patient care and benefit the NHS.
