The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on the whole MS community, with delays in specialist healthcare services and treatments, not to mention the isolation and loneliness of life in lockdown.
Today we’re launching our ‘MS Trust…in Us’ campaign to help restore MS specialist healthcare services in the UK, getting them back on track to ensure people with MS can get the care and support they need and deserve, during the pandemic and beyond. This campaign is more important now than ever.
The ‘MS Trust…in us’ campaign will fund three projects including:
• A new mental health education module for MS specialist health professionals attending our training, ensuring that people with MS have the most up to date and informed mental health support
• A second-wave of our Advanced MS Champions, providing care to people with advanced MS in their communities and enabling fair access to MS care
• Additional MS Nurses in NHS hospitals across the UK, easing the pressure on services and allowing more people with MS to be seen in areas where they are needed most
The impact of Covid-19 on MS services can no longer be ignored. You can trust in us to get vital services back on track, and to be there for people with MS their friends and families, and MS health professionals, today, tomorrow and every day after. But we need your support. Please join us and help ensure nobody has to manage MS alone.
