All our emergency services know about the ///WhatThreeWords location system.  Please look it up, and then write yours by the phone. You need any of them and you quote that three word name and they can find you within a couple of meters.  There is an app so you can always know where you are by that system.  


Some idiots were lost in Hamsterley Forest, and they used it to tell the police where they were.  The Mountain Rescue found them within fifteen minutes.  


It's a frankly brilliant idea.

Fascinating. Here's a link :-



Explore the world in 3 words. what3words is a giant grid comprised of 57 trillion 3m x 3m squares that cover the entire globe. It is the simplest way to communicate location.

Yes just 44k words!  All in their own countries, in their own languages, and they plan to do the sea soon too.

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.
