SPMS is a type of MS that the vast majority (about two in three) of those with a relapsing form of the condition will go on to develop. SPMS has a significant impact on those with the condition, which causes irreversible disability, cognitive decline, bladder dysfunction and considerably impaired mobility, among a range of other symptoms.
The report The Forgotten Many: A 2020 Vision for Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis has been developed in consultation with a group of MS experts who have provided insight into how services are managing people with SPMS.
In this video, report co-author Sue Thomas discusses some key findings for GPs and highlights the importance of providing a greater focus on and better support for people with SPMS.
