I am American, married to a UK citizen, and will be moving to the UK within the next two years. I am not familiar with the NHS at all, but what I gather from the reading I’ve done is that MS treatment/services really vary according to where one lives. Please correct me if I am mistaken about that.
I have great mobility problems and if things continue as they have been, I will be using a wheelchair part of the time in the near future. Right now. I drive and do most things independently. Not easy, but I do my best, albeit quite slowly.
My first question is where would be the best place for someone with MS to live? Is there one area which offers better care and support services than others? Places you would not recommend?
Believe me, I realize there are huge differences in our healthcare systems, but for now I am just trying to make the best decision possible.
Any input/opinions would be welcome.
