David Tennant Backs MS Campaign

David Tennant has added his name to a letter requesting that MS patients receive fair access to the treatments and help available.

The letter says:

Thousands of people living with multiple sclerosis (MS) in Britain are being denied the treatments, support and access to neurologists and nurses they need.
Research by the MS Society shows that six out of 10 eligible people with MS are not getting treatments that can reduce the frequency or severity of attacks, and in some cases slow the progression of disability. Those under the greatest financial pressure are the most in need of social care and support, but the least likely to get it. Access to treatments and services also varies dramatically across Britain.
Living with MS can be a daily battle to manage – it shouldn't involve a battle with health and social care authorities, too.
As people whose lives are affected by MS, we urge the Government to stop this lottery and ensure people have fair access to the treatments and services they need, when they need them, wherever they live.
David's Doctor Who co stars Billie Piper and Camille Coduri have also signed the letter.
