The Duke said ” I am delighted to support this wonderful and highly important campaign’. The charter has been put together by theMotor Neurone Disease Association and has been signed by over 10,000 people.
The charter sets out five key principles and priorities which will ensure patients with motor neurone disease are treated with respect and dignity. These are: the right to early diagnosis and information, the right to high quality care and treatment, the right to be treated with dignity and respect, the right to maximising the quality of life and support for carers.
