How does a world with coronavirus look for people living with muscle-wasting conditions? Join us for a panel discussion on the impact that Coronavirus has had, both on people living with muscle-wasting conditions and on the services that are relied upon, as we begin to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr Jatin Pattni, Psychologist at the Queen Square Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases, will provide a perspective on the mental health impact of recent months and Chloe Ball-Hopkins, who lives with a muscle-wasting condition, will share her experiences of shielding and what drove her to design badges that MDUK has made available for people to use as restrictions begin to be lifted.

Hear also from clinicians and policy experts on how neuromuscular services are adapting in order to resume providing support to patients and the wider impact of coronavirus across the NHS.
