National Ankylosing Spondylitis Society

    NASS was founded by patients, doctors and physiotherapists in 1975 at The Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases in Bath. The hospital was (and still is) treating groups of patients on a three week (now two) intensive physiotherapy programme. The early groups of patients realised the value of patient education which they were receiving through wide-ranging discussions between themselves and the medical staff. They were therefore stimulated to form a committee of a society whose main objective, through various ways, would influence a better disease outcome in their fellow spondylitics. The society has attracted over 15,000 members since 1975, and over 8,000 of them are still active members.
