Treat me right

Campaigning for the right treatment at the right time

We're campaigning for the right treatment at the right time for people with MS, whatever your situation, wherever you live.

People with MS should have fair and equal access treatments wherever they live. But this isn’t happening. Our award winning campaign plans to change that.

We’re campaigning to make these goals a reality:

  • All licensed MS treatments available on the NHS to everyone eligible for them
  • Regular reviews of treatment and care by MS specialists for everyone with MS
  • Accessible information about treatment options, and support to be equal partners in decision-making, available to all people with MS

Is access to treatment still a lottery?

Our research reveals that potentially thousands of people with relapsing forms of MS haven’t seen an MS nurse or neurologist in the last year or more.

Among this group, just 12% are taking a Disease Modifying Therapy (DMT) which could help reduce relapses and slow progression.

Accessing MS medicines

These guides aim to help you get access to medicines that have been proven effective for MS. 

We hope they'll help you get the right treatment at the right time.

Cannabis and MS

Since the first stage of Treat Me Right, we've been calling for the licensed treatment Sativex, to be available to people with MS on the NHS. You can get Sativex if you live in Wales (although our research has shown even there, people aren't regularly getting access to it) but not elsewhere in the UK.

Sativex is expensive and people can’t afford to pay for it privately. This urgently needs to change. Until that happens, we’re calling on the government to legalise cannabis for medicinal use to treat pain and muscle spasms in MS.
