There are over 40,000 people living with advanced MS in the UK. These people can feel invisible to the healthcare system, with little interaction with health professionals and limited access to disease modifying drugs. In this episode we talk to Paru and Rob from the MS Trust about why we are raising funds to place more health professionals in the NHS to try to help. We also talk to MS Champion Nicki Hare about what life with advanced MS is like and what MS champions do to help.
