MSA Trust


Created by our Information and Support team, with input from health and care experts, people with MSA and carers, we have produced a wide range of factsheets to guide you on adapting to life with multiple system atrophy.

If you need any further assistance or are concerned about anything you have read in our factsheets please contact our MSA Nurse Specialists.

References for all of our factsheets are available on request. Please note that the download of our Guide to MSA below is the most up to date version. We are currently reviewing this following the results of our MSA Needs Survey.
