Scotland to England

Hey… I’m thinking of leaving Scotland, where I’ve lived since diagnosis three years ago, to move back to England. Loads of benefits including being closer to family, friends and support for MS, childcare and life in general.

Does anyone know what differences in care, drugs, treatment etc might be if we do move south? Currently on tecfidera, but feel like I’ve been told that it might not be available on the nhs in England.

@willglasgow , I can’t see any problems with your Tecfidera prescription being continued in England.

However, you are going to need to manage the logistics of moving your healthcare, to ensure that there is no interruption to the supply of your meds.

I’m sure the MS Society Helpline (0808 800 8000, Monday to Friday 9am-7pm) would be able to advise on this.

I agree with Stumbler there shouldn’t be any problems, after all there are more instances per capita in Scotland than in England, so if anything there are slightly less deals (i.e, specialist ms clinics, ms day centresetc) but getting dmt’s and prescriptions shouldn’t be a problem. Whereabouts in England will you be coming to?😍
