A newly published report outlines people's lived experience of living with MS during the COVID-19 lockdown.

For the over 15,000 people living in Scotland with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic have been far reaching and life changing.

Many have felt anxious, isolated and concerned about the future. As we move into the next phase of easing lockdown, this anxiety is set to continue as people now navigate living with MS in a COVID world.

Some had seen a deterioration in their condition, manifesting in both their physical and mental wellbeing. The longer term consequences of being unable to access the services and support normally used to manage MS may be seen for years to come.

This important report from MS Society Scotland seeks to highlight some of the key issues and experiences of those living with MS.
