Members of the SMND RAG group (Hannah Hollinger and Emily Goodall) met with the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Sheffield Professor Sir Keith Burnett to talk to him about the Motor Neurone Disease Association MND charter.
The charter aims to achieve quality of life, dignity and respect for people with MND and their carers. This event was organised to raise the profile of this condition and gain support for quality of care for people with MND and their carers from key individuals within the healthcare field.
These individuals whose conditions and needs can change rapidly, need a responsive and efficient service to ensure timely provision of care. This is something that the MND Charter promotes. The more people that understand this condition and its needs, the better the care provision can be.
