How we ensure the quality of our information
We work with people affected by MS and other experts to ensure our information covers what readers want, and is clear and accurate.
We also consider the latest published evidence to ensure the information is up to date. We record this process according to the Department of Health-promoted Information Standard, of which we are certified members (see below).
We've made every effort to ensure that the information we produce is correct. We don't accept liability for any errors or omissions, and policy and practice may change. Seek advice from the sources listed.
Find the sources we use
Our information reflects available published research. You can email us to find out about the research papers we’ve used for a particular piece of information or give us a ring on 020 8438 0999.
The Information Standard
We're a certified member of The Information Standard.
This is a quality assurance standard established to improve the quality of health and social care information.
The Information Standard looks at our processes for producing and maintaining information for people affected by MS. This includes checking how we assess the evidence, involve people affected by MS and that we review information regularly.
The Information Standard covers all our health and social care information for people affected by MS, online and in print. It does not include news items, magazines, explanations of research processes, or the services we provide. Nor does it cover the online forums.
Information Standard disclaimer
The Information Standard programme owner and operator are not responsible whatsoever, directly or indirectly for damages or costs arising from information published by the MS Society on this website.
Get involved in the information we produce
Do you have ideas about our information or the information you want us to provide? You don’t need to be an expert in health care, or a scientist (though we don’t mind if you are!) – we want your thoughts and opinions.
We're always looking for volunteer reviewers for our information to help us plan and create new information, and improve the information already available.
We want to represent as many different experiences as possible. If you think you’d like to share your opinions with us, please get in touch and we can tell you more.
Covering the cost
Our information is available free of charge.
If you'd like to help cover the cost and further our work to stop MS, you can donate online, or call us on 0300 500 8084.
