A behnaz………it depends whether you are just visiting or coming as a student.
If as a student, you need to register with the GP to be able to access the NHS, whether thats your local dr in UK or a hospital.
If you can bring medical records from your home country, probly even better.
Online, well you have found shift! also check out the MS Society site……….v. useful for info, research events and all kind of stuff.
Depends WHERE in UK you will be, but there seems to be someone from most places on shift!

Hi @behnaz

Good to see you on here!

If you are coming for just one month, are you able to bring a supply of your Meds with you? I see you take Extavia (isn’t that a drug you have to mix up yourself?). While it is available in the UK, it is generally supplied and organised by the National Health Service so I don’t know how you would go about paying for it. @reddivine is likely to know much more about this than me (she is a fount of knowledge).

I also see that you are an English teacher! Having good English will help you an enormous amount in dealing with your MS in the UK.

Good luck with your travels – hopefully August will be sunny in the UK for your visit (that is a traditional UK saying – once you’ve been here and seen our weather you will understand why πŸ™‚ )
