NHS toolkit to improve healthcare services for people with progressive neurological conditions
Joined up support for people with MS
The NHS ‘RightCare toolkit’ gives local health bodies ways to tackle the shared challenges people with these conditions face.
It provides clear guidance on what services should be doing to improve, and how they can do it. This should mean more timely, joined up support for people with MS across the country.
Working together to prioritise neurological conditions
We created the toolkit with Parkinson’s UK, MS Trust, MND Association, Sue Ryder, MSA Trust and PSP Association. By working together, we’re much more likely to see these conditions prioritised in the NHS.
If implemented successfully, the NHS estimates there could be 2,500 fewer emergency admissions to hospital a year for patients with these conditions. This will free up £10 million to spend on improving services.
