This paper reports the results of two surveys of all UK rheumatologists conducted in 1993 and 1995.
Results are presented by regional health authority and by country.
During the 2 yr, there has been a rise in the number of consultants, but a fall in the proportion doing rheumatology combined with rehabilitation.
Consultants are working harder - doing more clinics and seeing more patients.
Regional disparities in service provision persist, but are slowly diminishing.
On the whole, the south of the country is better provided with consultants, but has fewer in-patient facilities, while the reverse is true in the north.
