Beggs pledges support for campaign


East Antrim MLA Roy Beggs Jr has pledged his support for a campaign that would enable people living with MS in Northern Ireland better access to treatments and services.

This comes as the MS Society revealed that people with the condition often face significant barriers in accessing licensed treatments and information.

The charity’s ‘Treat Me Right’ campaign calls on decision-makers and the MS community to tackle the barriers which stand in the way of people getting the right treatment at the right time.

Mr Beggs said: “I’m pleased to be able to show my support for this important campaign. MS affects many of my constituents and it is unacceptable that licensed treatments that could help people with the condition are out of reach. I will continue to work with my constituents, fellow MLAs and organisations to drive this campaign forward.”
