talkhealth and MSNTC are collaborating to increase awareness of the services available to those with MS and other long-term neurological conditions. The collaboration, which was kicked off with a webinar, will provide educational self-management support across the talkhealth platform and in MS National Therapy Centres.
Together, we aim to highlight the programmes, therapies and expert advice that both MSNTC and talkhealth offer to people with multiple sclerosis. This collaboration is the first of its kind and will provide us with the perfect insights into how partnerships work on our platform. It will allow us to engage with our existing members, and new ones, in exciting ways.
We will be working with centres across the UK, Ireland, and the Channel Islands, as well as one in Gibraltar, to host webinars, educational articles and online residency clinics. These will follow the tried and tested format of previous talkhealth features and harness new techniques. This strategy will allow us to measure the success of existing and innovative features over a prolonged period of time.
For people who are not yet signed up to our platform, this collaboration is a great way to ease them into both our online features and the talkhealth myMS support programme. The programme, which is made up of weekly email PDF’s that are jam-packed full of advice, will be highlighted as a key resource throughout the partnership. This means that loads more of our community will be taking part in the course and your patients can find like-minded people to complete the programme with. By elevating our support programme in this way, our sponsors will receive higher traffic organically which means our platform is boosted two-fold.
The main aim of this ongoing project is to highlight the innovative care opportunities that are provided by MSNTCs across the country. MSNTC is an organisation with over 47 member Centres. Each centre is an individual volunteer-led charity that is dedicated to the management of the symptoms of multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions via a range of therapies. These services include oxygen therapy, physiotherapy, advocacy advice as well as counselling and mental health support.
By spotlighting the centres, we are ensuring that patients that use talkhealth have an increased awareness of where they can access treatment. So, this collaboration will bolster both a wide range of centres and the talkhealth platform in tandem.

The collaboration began back in July when Doro Pasantes, CEO of the Brightwell Centre in Bristol, spoke with us about oxygen therapy. As one of the only MSNTCs to offer the therapy, this webinar provides a useful insight into the power of oxygen therapy in the management of symptoms of long-term neurological and chronic conditions.
