MS Trust information and engagement team
We’re delighted that a number of MS Trust resources have been recognised at the 2019 British Medical Association Awards.
The MS Trust website received the runner-up award in the Long-Term Conditions category, with judges calling it "a fantastic resource that has had a lot of thought and effort put into it."
MSTV (youtube.com/mstvuk), our YouTube channel for young people affected by MS, and our Disease Modifying Drugs book were both highly commended, and our Sex and MS and Managing your Bladder books were commended.
The BMA Awards recognise accessible, well-designed and clinically balanced patient information which promotes greater awareness and understanding of health matters, and patient choice.
Claire Winchester, head of of information and engagement at the MS Trust, commented:
We were delighted to be commended by the British Medical Association for our information resources. Having all five of the resources we entered attracting an award demonstrates the breadth and quality of our information across all channels from online support to printed publications.
If you would like to join our readers' panel and help ensure we continue producing resources that meet the needs of people with MS, please get in touch at email@example.com. You can order our publications here.
