Useful Links and Resources

Here are some external websites and resources that may be of use.

Your MND Clinical Specialist does not cover out of hours emergencies. If you have a medical emergency please contact your GP’s out of hours services, call NHS 24 on 111 or call the emergency services on 999.

Alternatively, if you need to speak to someone straight away, you may wish to call the Samaritans. The number for the Samaritans is 116 123 (no area code required).

It is important that you and your family plan ahead and have discussed what to do and who to call if there is an emergency. Please see our section on Anticipatory Care Planning (ACP) for guidance on planning for emergencies.

You may not think of yourself as a 'carer' but family members and friends who care for someone with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) may also need help and support.
