Freedom of Information Act 2000 – Request for Information

We are pleased to respond to your request for information and our response is set out below:


A new All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Axial Spondyloarthritis (axial SpA), including ankylosing spondylitis (AS) has been established to help drive the implementation of important new NICE guidance in the area. To support the early work of the group, Parliamentarians have asked for a Freedom of Information (FOI) request to be circulated to all commissioners and service providers in England to better understand current axial SpA (AS) service provision and levels of variation across the country.

The questions included within this Freedom of Information request are structured around the NICE Guideline for Spondyloarthritis and supporting Quality Standard. There is also one question relating to NICE TA383.
