Hi, I am considering moving back to the UK (I am a UK citizen) after living abroad for 6 years on a work assignment. I have been on Copaxone for 1 year so far, and will soon be switching to Tecfidera.
Has anyone moved back to the UK from overseas while on medication? I am concerned about how long it would take to get a consultation with an MS neurologist once I have registered with a GP. Unfortunately, I do not have a company health plan so I would be using the NHS. Am I correct in assuming that only the neurologist would be able to prescribe a DMD?
I would only be able to bring 3 months of medication with me and I am worried that if the wait time is quite long, that I would be without treatment for a few months.
Does anyone know how long it would take to get an appointment to see an MS neurologist?
If anyone has had a similar experience, please could you let me know if you had any issues on your return.
