We are using this secure online system to help assess your arthritis, complete a medication review if required, and gather some relevant lifestyle information. Your answers will always be seen by the practice team, and you can indicate at the end if you feel further discussion is needed.
This review is in addition to any clinic or hospital care you may receive, and is designed to consider your health more broadly.
REQUIRED: you need to enter your weight and height
OPTIONAL: You can enter some blood pressure readings
Before you complete this review you can also complete an optional self-assessment of your arthritis control. You will require a recent blood test result (CRP or ESR). Please visit:

- Install the mobile app to calculate your DAS28 nras.org.uk/resource/know-your-das/
BLOOD PRESSURE: Ideally, please measure your blood pressure in the morning and in the evening, while sitting down. Each time take two readings, 1 minute apart. Continue measurements twice daily for 4-7 days. Submitting all your readings here will allow calculation of your average blood pressure.
SAFETY: Your answers will be attached to your medical record but may not be seen immediately. This system should never be used if you are in need of urgent medical attention. In this event, please contact the appropriate services (999 or 111) or the practice as normal.
