Moving to Brighton

Hi everyone, I’m thinking on moving from Portugal to Brighton. I’ve got a job offer but I need to know if I can continue my actual treatment with Fingolimod. Does anyone does this treatment in Brighton? Or does anyone know if it is possible (if they provide it on Brighton)?

Thanks in advance

@vitorcarvalho , Gilenya (Fingolimod) is a treatment which is available in the UK. If you were hoping to receive this under our National Health Service (NHS), then you’d need to make enquiries as to the feasibility of this request.

It may be worthwhile contacting the MS Society in the UK and asking them the question.

Hi, the prescribing criteria here is that another medication hasn’t worked for us. That may well be different for someone who is already on it. I wonder how we’d find that out. Jx
