The Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre Lothian is a locally-based, grassroots charity that has been providing support for people living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) across the Lothians, the Borders and south Fife since 1984. We offer self-management support through a co-ordinated, holistic and person–centred approach, assisting people living with MS to manage, and make informed decisions about their lives.
