Number’s Up!

After a constituent with MS contacted Dame Anne, she got in touch with the MS Society who invited her to visit their stall during Labour Party conference in Liverpool.

Dame Anne took part in the ‘Can you beat the MS lottery’ challenge. The interactive challenge is designed to test politicians’ knowledge of multiple sclerosis (MS) by asking them to match numbered lottery balls to a range of statements. MPs are called upon to guess on everything from the UK’s ranking amongst EU countries for access to MS treatments to how much money local councils are cutting from care budgets.

Following the visit, Dame Anne said: “People with MS face a lottery on a daily basis when it comes to accessing treatments, care and welfare support. I will continue to work with the MS Society to ensure that people affected by MS in Aberdeen South receive the treatments and support they need.”
