Oxygen tank update

We are now fully operational and running at full capacity, ie, 6 people, in the chamber. 


Because the office is not manned every day, please DO NOT cancel your appointments by email, please leave a message on the answerphone.  Please also book appointments by telephone.


Membership needs to be paid BEFORE and therapies are taken, payment details are on the membership form.

The diary is open for bookings as follows:

MS members– 6 weeks, All other members – 3 weeks

PRIORITY WILL BE GIVEN TO MS PATIENTS – you may be asked to change your appointment to accommodate an MS member.

It is understood that some sessions have limited availability, please share.  If a favoured time is required by more than one person, please alternate your bookings to give each other the benefit.  Similarly, double sessions may be reduced to a single to accommodate more peoples’ needs.


Appointments (including oxygen) cancelled within 24hrs will incur full donation as all therapists will still expect payment.  Appointments made for a Monday, please try and cancel the Friday before, it is too late to rearrange appointments for the therapist.

NB: volunteers for oxygen sessions have to be organised and notified well in advance of the session.  Because we are carrying out far more oxygen sessions is has become an increasingly time consuming task to rearrange sessions and people.

Obviously donations for missed appointments will be discretionary as to individual circumstances.

Government advice changes – what does it mean for people with MS?

Last Monday the Government relaxed some of the coronavirus restrictions in what some have dubbed ‘Freedom Day’. But what does that mean for people with MS?

“Wear a mask – don’t wear a mask”
“Keep two metres from others – social distancing no longer applies”
“It’s freedom day – proceed with caution.”

If you’re feeling confused by what the easing of restrictions now mean for you, then you’re not alone. The MS Trust has updated their guidance on coronavirus and Multiple Sclerosis to help make sense of it all.

If you are feeling anxious or worried, our counselling service is available – call us on 0118 901 6000 or email ms@bmstc.org to make an appointment.

Presenting Enable Magazine
July-August issue

The UK’s leading disability and lifestyle title

Introducing the July-August issue of Enable magazine.
We’re so excited to share this issue with you and your network.


This issue, we get in gear with racing star Billy Monger as he takes on new challenges alongside some of the biggest names from Team GB. It’s normal to feel nervous about returning to social situations, especially if you or a loved one has been shielding. A charity and someone experiencing social anxiety share their advice.

After an estimated rise of more than 4.6 million unpaid carers during the pandemic, voices from the community share what needs to change in social care. Plus, we look at the importance of taking a break, highlighting some of the best staycation spots the UK has to offer. All of this and much more in the latest issue of Enable Magazine.

It will take place on Wednesday 14 July at 7pm and you can find out more at https://mssoc.uk/3y6Dudc
