We focus on health information but you, your friends or family can ask about anything we do with MS.
Supporting specialist services
The MS Trust is committed to supporting and developing MS specialist services in the UK because we believe that this will result in the best care for people living with MS.
Access to specialist services including MS nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists with expertise in MS, is essential if people living with MS are to receive the full range of support they might need.
We work hard to produce evidence to indentify what is required and demonstrate the value of specialist services. Once services are in place, we provide specialist education and continuing professional development for health and social care professionals to ensure high quality services are maintained. Many people assume this will be provided by the NHS. Sadly it is not, which is why the MS Trust's education programme is a vital factor in building MS specialist services in the UK.
The MS Trust has long campaigned to increase the number of MS specialists in the UK, but there are still not enough. The MS Trust plays a crucial role in protecting and developing these specialists. We offer one to one mentoring, advocacy to specialists facing reviews of their services and a range of tools to help them audit their own services and to demonstrate their own value.
