The 555 Neurology Project is here!

Hi everyone,

I am really excited to announce that we have launched a new project this week, which will capture the real experiences of people of being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) and other neurological conditions in our home region of Essex.

We are working with Healthwatch Essex and the Essex Neurology Network to host five focus groups across the county, and we need your help to spread the word!

Anyone who lives in Essex, is over 18 years old and has been diagnosed with a neurological condition (including MS) in the past three years is able to attend a focus group.

You can find out all about the focus groups online at and register on there too if you’d like to attend!

I am particularly excited about this project as it sees eight charities joining together in Essex to run the 555 Neurology Project, urging the public to speak out about their experiences of being diagnosed with a neurological condition.Photo of Ryan for blog.jpg

These conditions include acquired brain injury, epilepsy, Huntington’s Disease, Motor Neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy or stroke, and affect over 35,000 people in Essex.

I really hope you can attend a focus group, and if you would like any information at all about what’s involved, just email me at or call me on 01206 226500.

Best wishes,
