MS Trust Conference 2016


We were delighted to welcome around 300 health professionals to the MS Trust's 20th annual conference which took place in Windsor from 6-7 November 2016.

The conference provided MS specialist nurses, allied health professionals with expertise in MS and other health and social care professionals with the opportunity to hear about the latest treatments, therapies, developments in clinical practice and research from key opinion leaders. It also offered the chance to share best practice and network with colleagues from around the UK.
