EDM number 855 in 2017-19, proposed by Jim Shannon on 24/01/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases, Health education and preventive medicine and Health services.

That this House acknowledges the significant impact spondyloarthritis conditions have on individual sufferers and highlights the importance of achieving improved outcomes for patients; notes the often distressing and debilitating symptoms of the conditions, and the particular need to improve awareness of spondyloarthritis symptoms in light of the current eight and a half years average delay from onset spondyloarthritis to accurate diagnosis; recognises the fact that patients are more likely to experience a significantly lower quality of life and poorer employment outcomes compared with the wider population; and calls for all relevant stakeholders to work together to ensure effective implementation of NICE Guideline 65, Spondyloarthritis in over 16s: diagnosis and management and to support the ongoing development of a corresponding NICE Quality Standard for spondyloarthritis.

This motion has been signed by a total of 13 MPs.
