The MS Society has launched a new campaign this week.
There are 1 in 6 people in the UK living with a neurological condition – yet NHS neurology services have been stretched, underfunded and overlooked for years. These services were neglected long before the pandemic – but now the situation is critical.
On Wednesday 6 October, the MS Society launched their new campaign, to tell the UK Government not to leave people with MS behind.
Research by the MS Society has found people’s MS symptoms got worse during the pandemic, with over half of them (53%) saying this was caused by not getting specialist support. And, 63% of MS professionals find it very challenging to provide a good service to everyone.
We need urgent action to ensure everyone with MS has access to the right professionals and treatment at the right time across the UK.
We’re calling for more funding and support for the neurology workforce, so people can get the essential care they need.
