We are really pleased with how the ‘Newly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis’ booklet has been received. Producing the booklet was a fantastic collaborative experience with the teams here at MS-UK working in close partnership with people with MS to write and develop the booklet and make sure the tone and content was just right.
‘Congratulations on the Newly Diagnosed Booklet, I am sure it will be a big success and really helpful to those at the beginning of their new life with the challenge of multiple sclerosis.’ – VIP
We worked with over 150 people with MS to gain the experiences to help shape the content and then went to our Virtual Insight Panel (a group of people with MS, carers and MS professionals) to gain their thoughts on the content before finally publishing the booklet.
‘This looks really good – just what is needed!’ – VIP
The pack has been sent out to all the MS Therapy centres and to many of the specialist MS clinics across the UK. It has been so well received that we have even had many nurses and clinicians reorder additional copies.
‘The information is easy to read, informative and well presented.’ – MS Clinical Nurse Specialist
As well as the physical copies that have been sent out to individuals, clinics and MS Therapy Centres the booklet has been downloaded from our website by approximately 200 people!
We look forward to hearing what you all think of the booklet and will ensure that this is updated regularly and always includes the voices of real people with MS.
