Participate in our audit of MS services

An audit for clinician teams, by clinician teams to drive improvement in MS service provision. Providing MS care is very challenging. It is set to get far more challenging with no clear strategy from the NHS in how to support MS teams. This UK audit aims to empower clinician teams to change and improve their MS services, care for MS patients and personal work environments. We would appreciate your help gathering information on your own MS service. This will create a wider understanding on the variance of current service provision and capacity limitations.
