Event description

Description

Managing care for people with Multiple Sclerosis and Related Diseases has become increasingly complex and challenging with local services under increasing pressure. With these conditions having such a massive impact on patients, their families, and as a result the wider health and social care system, it is imperative that timely and appropriate care is delivered.

In the face of this challenge, local clinical teams have come together to advance plans to establish a new regional networked service to support patients across the South West. The network's aims would be to enhance and protect MSRD services and ensure they provide consistent, high levels of care for people throughout the South West by developing new infrastructure and common process across the region.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the plans for the South West networked service with important stakeholders and partners and create a dialogue about what that might look like and how it can be delivered. The specific aims for the day are to:

Share the objectives of this ground-breaking initiative

Provide an update of project progress so far and actions required to move forward

Learn from other relevant initiatives that could help inform new and regional approaches for MS care

Use expert input from participants to guide and shape the projects that will help establish the network and deliver its ambitions

The meeting will involve presentations, smaller group discussion and planning sessions and lots of informal discussion and networking; a shared lunch will also be provided. The day will be organised by the network's project group which includes representation from the MS teams, including MS consultants, MS Nurses and professional services.

As numbers are limited, this is an invitation only event, so please do not register unless you have received a formal invite from the project team. If you would like to attend or find out more about the event please contact zoe.robinson@swahsn.com

Further details, including an agenda, will be shared nearer the time.
