Bee Positive With ASNet!
The Arthritis Self-help Network is a charity based in London supporting people suffering with arthritis. Please watch the short video below to see some feedback from some of our group members about products that help them deal with the condition.
The ASNet support system is a service for anyone diagnosed with one or more of the 200 types of arthritis.
The ASNet model is designed to help a patient at the point of need, empowering them through education and a variety of therapeutic methods to help them cope with the disease on a daily basis.
An edcuated patient is easier to treat, reduces clinical time and is also a cost saving to the NHS.
