N.I.C.E Guidelines


The NICE clinical guideline on multiple sclerosis covers the full range of care that should be available from the NHS to adults of all ages with MS. They include how the diagnosis should be made, how people should be told they have MS and the treatments that should be offered. Treatments for MS may involve medicines but also include physiotherapy, rehabilitation, and psychological and emotional support.

Click the Download button at the top of the page to save the full guidelines as either PDF, ePub or eBook.

In particular, see the tab for Tools and Resources at the top, and the link for Recommendations (about 1/2 down on the left sidebar menu) where it states time-frames and what information you should be given after diagnosis etc.

About Us

Founded in 2004, MS People UK is a community website and discussion forum by and for people with Multiple Sclerosis as well as for friends, families, supporters and those interested in this disabling condition.

If you’re newly diagnosed or want to ask about possible first symptoms, or if you’ve had Relapse Remit, Secondary or Primary Progressive MS for some time, a welcoming group of fellow MS sufferers is here to chat with you about MS symptoms, diagnosis and treatments.

The atmosphere is friendly whilst being compassionate, supportive and caring. Members also post about a variety of subjects not related to MS, as well as share jokes, talk about their hobbies, have fun, and more.

The MS People Forum is not responsible for advice or information supplied by members. We suggest you seek medical advice before trying anything.
