Disease modifying Treatments

If you are on an injectable treatment: Glatiramer acetate (Brabio/Copaxone), Interferon beta 1a (Avonex, Plegridy, Rebif), Interferon 1b (Betaferon), or an oral treatment such as Dimethyl fumarate (Tecfidera), Fingolimod (Gilenya) and Teriflunomide (Aubagio) your treatment will not be altered, unless your blood test results indicate that you may be at higher risk of infection. The MS nurse team will contact you directly if this applies to you.

If you are on Natalizumab (Tysabri) infusions, your infusions will continue.

If you have already been treated with Alemtuzumab (Lemtrada), Ocrelizumab (Ocrevus) and Cladribine (Mavenclad) your care will continue as before. The MS team will be in contact if you are due a repeat treatment soon.

If you are waiting to start a treatment such as Alemtuzumab (Lemtrada), Ocrelizumab (Ocrevus) and Cladribine (Mavenclad), the MS Team will also be in contact with you to discuss this.

Coronavirus - useful information

The latest health information about Coronavirus can be found at www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

Information and updates about our services can be found on this website here.


As of Wednesday 21 October, after reviewing the guidance for visiting as set out by NHSE, the Trust has taken the difficult decision to suspend visiting to all of our sites, with immediate effect.  We have taken this decision to limit the spread of Covid-19, and to protect vulnerable patients and ensure staff safety.  As soon as it possible to safely relax the visiting restrictions we will do so


From Monday 15 June 2020, visitors and outpatients coming into our hospitals will be asked to wear a face covering at all times, to help us reduce the spread of Covid-19.  A face covering can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head.  It should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.  For more information click here
