The map shows:

  • Every centre in the UK where MS specialist nurses or neurology specialist nurses with MS within their caseload are employed and/or disease modifying drugs are prescribed.  Note that the map does not show places where MS clinics are held as outposts of other centres, with visiting staff.
  • Each Clinical Commissioning Group / Health Board categorised by the amount of MS nurse capacity available per person with MS.  The colour coding of each area represents whether the area is within the MS Trust recommended ‘sustainable’ caseload of 358 people with MS per whole time MS nurse.

The map is correct as at July 2016.

Full details of the methodology used to count and map MS nurses to populations and the assumptions made about MS prevalence are given in the accompanying report which also summarises the findings of this work at population level.
