About the Centres

There are more than 60 MS therapy centres across the UK, Ireland and the Channel Islands, as well as one in Gibraltar which was founded in 2006. The majority (though not all) of these are members of MSNTC. 

Each MS therapy centre is an individual charity with dedicated volunteers (some centres are entirely run by volunteers) and donors who give freely of their time and money. Some centres receive funding from local NHS boards, but most are reliant on donations and fundraising activities for their income. A high proportion of centre directors/trustees are people affected by MS. Staff and volunteers have appropriate training and qualifications for delivering therapy, such as HPC accreditation (for physiotherapists and nurses) and training from MS National Therapy Centres for oxygen operators.

Self-help is our way of action

Our centres work on a self-referral basis This means that you do not need to be referred by a healthcare professional in order to access treatments and services (although many centres will ask you to notify your GP of which treatments you are accessing, for information purposes). Centre users (often, but not always, referred to as members) can choose one or a selection of treatments to manage their symptoms in a way which works best for them.

Centres exist to help people with MS (and other neurological conditions) continue to live as normal a life as possible. Therefore, while it is not always possible due to staffing and capacity, they will try to fit treatments and appointments in at times convenient to centre users.
