The Multiple Sclerosis (MS) service is currently operational Tuesday to Thursday and is available to anyone over 18 with a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis and is registered with a Huntingdonshire GP.

We offer an open referral system providing there is a definite diagnosis of MS and consent has been obtained from the person with MS.

We provide counselling, support and symptom management for all people with MS and those affected by their diagnosis, through all stages of the disease from diagnosis to palliative care.

We work closely with the multidisciplinary teams to ensure holistic appropriate care is given and continuity of care is maintained throughout the MS journey.

A similar service is provided to those residents in East Cambridgeshire South Cambridgeshire, and Cambridge City via Addenbrookes Hospital MS specialist nurses.

Benefits of the services include:

  • Improved quality of life
  • Patients are more able to manage day to day living
  • Better symptom control and medicines management in people with Multiple Sclerosis
  • Increased understanding of their own disease journey which enables patients to better self-manage their own condition
  • Reducing unnecessary hospital admissions or earlier discharge with support in the community

An open referral system operates from any source as long as there is patient consent.
