Our ‘Meet the Expert’ event in April 2019

Posted on 2 May 2019 in About the clinic

Last Thursday, 25 April 2019, saw the successful holding of our ‘meet the expert’ event at the Nuffield Health & Wellness Centre in Stoke.

It was an evening where patients and their carers, partners or friends met:

  • Consultant MS Neurologist Dr Adnan Al-Araji
  • Specialist MS Nurses
  • Neuro-Physiotherapists
  • Specialist Psychologist Therapist in MS

and introduced our team and what roles they do; also the fantastic Nuffield Health team.

It was an opportunity to listen to the individual concerns of patients and how the team can address them, by offering tailored solutions, based on the needs of the patient.

During the consultations Dr Al-Araji and his team answered questions from different types of people… From those who have had Multiple Sclerosis for many years to those who are recently going through the diagnostic process.

It was very rewarding to see so many people getting value from the event and using the resources, multi-disciplinary team and learning about the state of the art facilities and treatment that we have access to.

The patients seem to very much enjoy the convenience and experience of our ‘one-stop approach’ that we have created in partnership with the Nuffield Health, where we are able to create an environment and experience where patients can see a multi-disciplinary team of healthcare professionals on the same visit.  They found that to be beneficial, useful and a unique experience for people affected by Multiple Sclerosis.

Here is the Al-Araji Specialist Clinic team, who were there at the event this included (from left to right, this included Hayley, Claire, Dr Al-Araji, Karen, Claire, Nichola – learn more about their roles here).

In addition to the team from our clinic, here you can see the fantastic team from Nuffield Health, Emma and Roxy.   They welcomed patients as they arrived and were more than happy to assist and make sure all patients had the opportunity to be seen by the relevant health care professionals and all their questions were asked. 

The location of the Nuffield Health & Wellness centre was ideal! Being just a couple of minutes from the M6 motorway, with ample parking and Stoke’s proximity in the country, made it an accessible location.
