The Neurology Academy UK MS service audit
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. By working as a cohesive group we are far more powerful in effecting change.
We would appreciate your help gathering information on your own MS service. Any presented/published data will not identify individual centres. This will create a wider understanding on the variance of current service provision and capacity limitations.
We recognise MS teams also manage people with a range of non-MS conditions.
