The MND Special Interest Group (SIG) is an informal network of health and community care professionals interested in the care of people with motor neurone disease.

The diagnosis of motor neurone disease (MND) is often difficult and may require observing symptom progression for some time before the diagnosis can be given with some certainty.

Timely referrals and diagnosis is crucial in ensuring the needs of people living with MND are met from the earliest possible stage.

A quick reference tool for paramedics on providing optimal care and support for people with MND.
