Our multiple sclerosis service

We know that coping with multiple sclerosis (MS) is not easy.

We are an established service that has worked closely with thousands of people who live with MS.

Our MS service is based at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN), in Queen Square in central London. The MS clinical service is closely linked with University College London's Institute of Neurology (ION) and together forms the largest single-site centre for neurology and neurosurgery in the UK. We are also internationally recognised for being at the leading edge of clinical care.

Our team are committed to delivering the best possible service to people with MS and aim to provide specialist services, share information on how to manage symptoms, offer education dessions to discuss lifestyle issues, medication options and rehabilitation services.

We run one-to-one sessions at the time of diagnosis, group classes for newly diagnosed patients, symptom management tips, medication management and education regarding treatments, information about coping with MS, as well as a range of specialist clinics.

In addition to running specialist clinics, our MS service is linked to major research programmes at the ION, looking at new treatments, better ways of managing MS and improving our understanding of the condition.

Please note that the MS services will be using our new facility at Cleveland Street one day a week for disease modifying treatment screening and education clinics and to administer some MS treatments. Your appointment letter will make clear where your appointment will take place.
