Nothing is set in stone yet but there is a strong chance that we will be moving to Wales (Cardiff) in the next couple of months. My husband is from Swansea and wants to go back to Wales - not just because they won the Grand Slam yesterday but because we will have lots of brilliant family and and friends nearby. We are waiting on a transfer of my job to a home-based role as a reasonable adjustment for my disability issues. This would be much less stressful for me (my current levels of stress are pushing me into regular mini relapses) and this different role would genuinely significantly extend my useful working life
So far, so exciting but there is a big MS-shaped fly in the ointment. What level of treatment can I expect in Cardiff? I currently have a fantastic care team in South London - particularly a fantastic MS nurse.
This week I read news about MS Cymru’s latest report about MS nurses. This seems to confirm what I have been told - ie that MS care in Wales (like anywhere) can be patchy. I know that Swansea (Morriston hospital) is/was a centre of excellence for neuro (in fact my mother-in-law raised thousands for them whilst my late father-in-law had Parkinsons) but obviously we wouldn’t come under them.
So, has anyone had any experience of treatment for MS patients in Cardiff?
