Personalised neuromuscular care plans and condition specific emergency alert cards are vital documents that can help keep you safe and healthy.
Neuromuscular care plan
Muscular Dystrophy UK has worked alongside a range of specialist health professionals to develop a care plan that can be completed by yourself and your neuromuscular clinicians. This care plan can then be shown to any health professional and helps them to give a tailored approach to your healthcare.
The care plan is designed to be filled in by a person with a muscle-wasting condition and the various health professionals you see. This may include a consultant neurologist, neuromsuscular care advisor, occupational therapist, physiotherapist as well as cardiac and respiratory specialists.

Muscular Dystrophy UK has created condition-specific alert cards for different muscle-wasting conditions.
These new cards mean that people living with muscle-wasting conditions and their families will have the security of knowing they can easily inform emergency health care professionals of the vital and specific issues that affect children and adults with these conditions.
