Chilterns MS Centre provides services and advice to people with MS, as well as their families and carers. It helps people living with the disease by offering a number of life changing and supportive therapies and treatments that are effective for the patient, such as specialist neuro-physiotherapy, oxygen treatment and other supportive therapies.

The treatments, therapies and support the centre provides have a genuine impact on the individual changing the quality of their daily life. Chilterns MS Centre treats 260 patients each week and no one is ever turned away, however minor or severe their disability.

The NHS provides no long-term treatment for people diagnosed with MS. This means the treatments, therapies and services provided by the centre are a lifeline for people who have the disease.

The services it offers are subsidised by essential donations and the efforts of its hardworking fundraising teams.
