The award for outstanding Allied Health Professional (AHP) is open to any UK professional treating MS who is not an MS nurse or doctor. This year it was won by Tania Burge. Tania is the physiotherapist who has been running the MS rehabilitation services at the Bristol and Avon MS Clinical Unit (BrAMS) in Bristol for over 8 years. Tania’s award was in recognition of her outstanding efforts to provide high quality, innovative services for people who have MS in the Bristol area.
