MS Nurses provide invaluable support and specialist clinical advice to people with multiple sclerosis.
They are passionate about supporting symptom management, improving quality of life, educating and empowering people with MS. They are often the main point of contact for a person with MS, coordinating services, referring someone on to a doctor, or a therapist, or other appropriate services.
Who else could be better to provide insight and understanding than an MS Nurse?
