    Researchers at the University of Aberdeen have been awarded more than £50,000 to investigate the impact of lockdown on patients with arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions.

    About 2,000 patients across the UK with variety of arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions will be sent questionnaires in the first instance, with in-depth interviews set up with some of them afterwards.

    The charity Versus Arthritis and the British Society for Rheumatology (BSR) is funding the study.
