MNDA - MNDA

MND Association’s #GetMNDonTheList campaign

The charity is calling on the government to include those living with MND in their group of 'extremely vulnerable' people to shield from COVID-19.

MND Association is campaigning for MND to be added to the list so that people living with the disease do not miss out on essential support, such as priority supermarket delivery slots and help with food supplies and medicines.

This list currently does not include people living with MND. As MND is a progressive and terminal condition which frequently impacts the respiratory system, MND patients are extremely vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus and the charity claims should be included on this list.

Through campaigning, the Northern Ireland Executive have taken the decision to add MND to their 'extremely vulnerable' persons lists. However, the charity is still campaigning for the change to also be made in England and Wales.
