• 1 in 3 know someone with MS
• 70% are unaware of the major symptoms
• MS Trust celebrating MS Awareness Week – 24th-30th April
with announcement of three new MS nurses and more to come in 2017
MS (Multiple Sclerosis) Awareness Week 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of MS specialist nursing in the UK and the appointment of the first new MS Trust funded nurses. However, the latest research commissioned by the MS Trust shows that MS is still a widely misunderstood condition.
A third of Brits know someone who has MS, yet 1 in 5 don’t know what MS stands for and almost 70% admit to being unaware of the major symptoms.
