MS Register

The MS Register is the world’s first register, for any condition, to combine information from you, about your MS, with clinical and NHS data.

The MS Register is forming an incredibly accurate picture that is already revolutionising our understanding of MS, inviting people to provide information on life with MS in the UK. We are using this vital information to fuel campaigns for fair, relevant policy and improved healthcare.

The Register aims to:

  • provide the most relevant information to researchers
  • provide an easier way to collect information from people with MS
  • build the evidence we need to campaign
  • build a clear picture of the true impact MS has on people’s lives

In the long-term, the MS Register could enable the development of new services that better meet the needs of people with MS. Through the Register, people with MS can be partners in their healthcare, providing the evidence we need to drive vital MS research and campaign for more support.
