MS nurses going the extra mile

In the run up to MS Awareness Week (29 April to 5 May) we have been asking people to nominate their MS nurse for our Super Nurse award: an accolade given each year to a nurse that really makes a difference. We have had nominations in for more than 80 nurses so far, from all over the UK.

For our latest report, I wanted to share with you some of the great comments that have been coming in from people with MS about their MS nurses. The nominations we've received really show what a difference MS nurses can make to individuals living with multiple sclerosis.

“I had symptoms for nearly 20 years before diagnosis and was in a very bad place when I first met my MS nurse. She just knew, she understood and she helped so much that it felt as though I had been picked up and cradled, such was her empathy. She always finds a time to see you and goes out of her way to be there.”

“My MS nurse is wonderful. He is totally reliable and is always there to answer questions. He monitors my medication every month and has a really positive attitude every time I see him. He always goes that bit extra and really cares for his clients. He is the most important person in our lives when it comes to anything related to MS.”

“When I was diagnosed, my MS nurse was there to explain everything to me about treatments and therapies. She is always only ever a phone call away and is such a good listener. She has supported my family through what was initially a difficult time. She is just such a great person and I am very lucky to have her as my nurse.”

“Despite caring for everyone in the county with MS, she makes me feel safe and cared for. She remembers everything. Without her I would be lost and alone.”

Thank you for donating towards our MS Nurse Support Programme and for helping to protect MS nurses now and for the future. Our work continues to ensure that people living with MS get the vital support, expertise and reassurance that only MS specialist nurses can deliver.
