Generating Evidence in MS Services reports

2 minute read

Our GEMSS programme collected evidence about how services work best for people with MS.

The GEMSS findings were collected over a three-year period (2012-15) and were used to help develop better NHS services for the future. A range of influential and practical reports came out of the project.
