My MS My Needs Report

Fitted

Thursday November 24 2016 01:05 PM

In May 2016, over 800 people with MS completed the 'My MS My Needs' survey. The purpose of the survey was to help us plan our services and to inform our ongoing advocacy work. We are still currently working with a researcher to produce a full report.

In the meantime, we have produced an infographic highlighting some of the key results, including:

  • 44% waited more than 6 months for their last Neurologist appointment
  • 58% do not have a medical card
  • Nearly 30% are struggling on their current income

I attend the Med Ex programme in DCU and my condition has improved greatly since I started there in July.
