MS (Multiple Sclerosis)

Neuro-Inflammatory Service


COVID-19: Information for patients


Welcome to the neuro-inflammatory service webpages. Please find below information on how the service is running due to the ongoing  COVID-19 pandemic, as well as information for you if you are on DMT’s (Disease Modifying Therapies)

We shall do our best to keep these pages up to date but if the information here (or on the MS Society and MS Trust website) does not answer your question please leave us a message on our helpline, 02920 745018

Our Helpline is manned on the weekdays, but it is not an emergency service. Please remember to speak slowly and clearly and leave one message, with your name, date of birth and a summary of your question. We will get the most suitable person to reply to you as soon as possible.


Appointments

To protect patients and staff, many of our routine appointments have been changed to telephone or video consultations.

Some consultations are taking place face to face at Rookwood Hospital, following current safety guidelines.

Infusions are now taking place in Suite 16 of the UHW outpatient department (again following safety guidelines).

For blood monitoring please see separate section.
