Multiple sclerosis commissioning pathway launched by trust

The MS Trust has launched a pathway designed to simplify the process and enable effective commissioning for MS.

Produced in partnership with all the major organisations with MS expertise, and based in the 18-week software used by the DoH for other pathways, it provides information on the requirements for MS commissioning from diagnosis to death.

It includes red flags for critical assessment in the disease progression, identification points where the clock starts and stops to meet targets and indicates the links between primary, secondary and tertiary providers of care. PCTs can localise the pathway to suit their specific requirements.
