Position Statements

The following guidelines have been drawn up by the Rheumatology Private Practice Group (RPPG) under the auspices of the South African Rheumatism and Arthritis Association, for the use of Healthcare Funders with regard to Rheumatic Diseases. They should be seen as broad principles and not rigid criteria. Allowance should be made for exceptional cases, which should be discussed between the Rheumatologist and Healthcare Funder.
