PEOPLE in Fife living with MS should be given the right treatment, care and support, according to a local MSP.

David Torrance (SNP, Mid-Scotland and Fife) has pledged his support to a campaign which aims to stop an MS ‘lottery’ after it was revealed not everyone in Scotland was able to access the health and social care services, support and MS treatments they needed.

The MS Society showcased the results from their report, A Lottery of Treatment and Care, during a reception recently.

Mr Torrance attended to show his support for the ‘Stop the MS Lottery’ campaign and to meet people living with the condition.

The area MSP said: “I’m pleased to be able to show my support for this important campaign.

“MS affects many of my constituents and everyone should be able to get the treatment, services and support they need.

“I will continue to work with my constituents, fellow MSPs and organisations to drive this campaign forward”.

Christine Carlin, MS Society Director for Scotland said, “There are over 10,500 people living with MS in Scotland and it is essential that these people can access the right treatments, services and support in order to manage their condition.
