Issue date: 02 May 2018


Dr Caroline Flurey, Senior Lecturer in Public Health at the University of the West of England is to be appointed President of the British Society of Health Professionals in Rheumatology (BHPR), a section of the British Society for Rheumatology. The appointment will be conferred at the British Society for Rheumatology's annual conference taking place in Liverpool this week (1-3 May).

Caroline, who takes over from Dr Jill Firth, said: “I am looking forward to continuing the excellent work carried out by BHPR under Jill's leadership, and to exploring new opportunities to support our members.

“As a society we aim to support our members to deliver the best possible care, to improve the lives of people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal conditions. We provide education and training for our members through conferences, short courses and e-learning (online modules and webinars with experts), and bursaries to fund attendance at conferences and research or educational visits. We also support our members by producing NICE accredited guidance, and we work with government and policy makers to raise issues that are important to people living with rheumatic and musculoskeletal conditions.

“Following the integration of our societies, I am looking forward to working with the Presidents of British Society for Rheumatology (BSR) and the British Society for Paediatric Rheumatology (BSPAR) to continue providing support to our members across the whole multi-disciplinary team.”

BHPR is a section of the British Society for Rheumatology that represents members who are nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, podiatrists, pharmacists, psychologists, sociologists, radiologists, social workers and clinical researchers.
