Newly diagnosed

A diagnosis of MND can feel overwhelming. You, your family and everyone close to you will need time to adjust.

Much can be done to manage symptoms, to enable you to maintain independence for as long as possible and to help you deal with the emotional impact of MND.

A wide range of health and social care professionals are likely to be involved with you and your family, which is often referred to as a multi-disciplinary team (MDT). MDT expert care, combined with treatments or therapies, may help you to maintain the best possible quality of life, for as long as possible, when living with the condition.

The MDT are the medical experts, and the Branch can be here to guide you through the specifics of care in the local area (as services vary by county) and provide emotional support, as you need us to.

Further information and support is available from the MND Connect section of the national website
