Motor Neurone Disease (MND)

The Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Service is run jointly by Dorothy House and the RUH. The service offers a single point of contact and ongoing support for patients with MND, their families and carers.

This service offers specialist information, sign-posting, support and guidance from diagnosis onwards. An MND specialist nurse works within the RUH, Dorothy House and the community, and can visit patients in their homes.

The MND specialist nurse can offer:

  • Information about MND and referral to community teams
  • Benefits information
  • Access to Motor Neurone Disease Association support
  • Advice and support with advance care planning
  • Referral to Dorothy House courses, emotional support, respite care, complementary therapy and palliative care advice
  • Advice, education and support for healthcare professionals and nursing homes.
