About Revive MS
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a condition which can affect people in a whole range of ways and to differing degrees. At Revive MS Support, you’ll find a wide range of information, support and specialist therapies which are designed to make life better for people affected by MS, no matter what their symptoms might be.
Our main base is the multi-therapy MS centre in Govan, in the South of Glasgow. The Centre aims to be a “one-stop shop” for everyone affected by MS - that includes those who live with the condition, for family members and carers or fellow health professionals.
A team of almost 30 professional staff offer a wide range of therapies including physiotherapy, aromatherapy, reflexology, counselling, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, speech and language therapy (including swallowing and cognitive advice), chiropody, dietary advice and other specialist services and support groups, as well as information, advice and practical support. We offer a range of groups and classes, from Pilates to Fatigue Management sessions. And we also offer a variety of services for those recently diagnosed, including support for carers, counselling and information and advice for our allied health professional partners.
We strive to complement local statutory health and social services and work in partnership with them under the auspices of the “Integrated Services Project”. As part of this project, a weekly clinic takes place in Cathcart, South Glasgow which caters for a significant number of people from that part of the city.
As well as serving the areas covered by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and NHS Lanarkshire, users travel from all parts of the West and Central Scotland to access the services at our MS Therapy Centre in Glasgow. And we take some of our team of MS professionals out on the road to other communities, with regular fortnightly or monthly outreach clinics in Hamilton, Douglas, Carluke and Easterhouse. More venues are planned for the near future.
Revive MS Support’s therapy centre is also a hive of social activity, where you are welcome to drop in at any time. Clients often pop in, without appointment, for lunch or a cup of tea and a good old chinwag. Tommy’s toasties and the banter are renowned! The Centre provides a warm and friendly atmosphere for anyone who wishes to attend. We also do a keen trade in pre-loved books, DVDs, CDs and videos. You are sure to find something of interest!
