Multiple Sclerosis Society Volunteers

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common disabling neurological condition affecting young adults. Around 100,000 people in the UK have MS. MS is the result of damage to myelin - a protective sheath surrounding nerve fibres of the central nervous system. For some people, MS is characterised by periods of relapse and remission while for others it has a progressive pattern. For everyone, it makes life unpredictable.


The MS Society Volunteers work with the MS Specialist Nurse to provide an information point for patients/visitors who visit the MS outpatient clinic on Monday mornings.  They offer information and support appropriate to the individual needs of the patient or carer.


Training and support from the MS Society enables the volunteers to provide patients and visitors with appropriate published information from the MS Society and MS Trust. They also provide information about local services for people with and affected by MS across Greater Manchester. Their knowledge of the hospital and its inner workings also means that more practical support with issues such as car parking and directions are available to those using the service.
