Support for people with MS and their families
MS can be tough to deal with, especially when you've just been diagnosed. But you're not alone. The MS Society can help you get emotional support, benefits guidance and the right care. And of course, MS doesn't just affect the person with the condition, it impacts on family members too.

If you, or a family member, is affected by MS and you require information or support, please contact us to arrange a visit. All enquiries are dealt with in the strictest confidence.

There are a range of services offered in the area including an MS Specialist Nurse, Liz Clark from NHS Dumfries and Galloway. Liz has been in the post since it was created in 2005 following an MS Society campaign for the introduction of MS specialist nurses in every health authority area.

In addition, the Nithbank Rehabilitation Unit offers services to people following an illness or diagnosis of a long-term condition. Many adults are referred to the rehabilitation service for further rehabilitation or information, advice and support in managing their condition.

The rehabilitation team consists of nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists who deliver treatments, therapies and support both within the unit at Nithbank Dumfries, and in the community depending on people's needs.
