Amy Woolf, CEO of MS-UK, says

‘By launching the live web chat service, we hope to offer people another channel to connect with trained MS Advisors. Not everybody likes talking on the telephone, but they still want an instant response to their concerns. The growth we have seen in the past 12 months of people wanting information and support about multiple sclerosis tells us we’re doing the right thing.’

Since 1993, MS-UK has offered information and support to anyone affected by multiple sclerosis via telephone. The MS-UK Helpline is confidential, unbiased and completely free.
