We work closely with the MND Association, which is the largest charity supporting people affected by MND in England and Wales. Their aim is to ensure that people affected by MND, their families and carers receive the appropriate support and care they require.
The network has two Regional Care Development Advisors (job-share). They work with local health and social care staff to improve the services for people with MND locally. They are:
- Lindsay Goward. Tel: 03453 751829
- Liz Cooper. Tel: 03453 751827
