Two Steps Towards Speedier Ataxia Diagnosis

Too many people with ataxia have struggled to receive a diagnosis. Due to its rare nature, many medical professionals are unaware of what ataxia is and how to treat it. The Medical Guidelines, created by Ataxia UK and neurologists, aims to provide recommendations for healthcare professionals on the diagnosis and management of people with progressive ataxia.

You can help improve diagnosis for the ataxia community. How, you ask? In just two steps! 

  1. Sign up for the challenge and we will send you an information pack with the medical guidelines. 
  2. Get sponsored to walk, wheel or run with family and friends, or fly solo, to your local GP surgery on or around 25 September and give them the Medical Guidelines. 

That’s it! 

Be part of the change this year to speed up diagnosis and improve care for the ataxia community with just two steps. Don’t forget to gather friends and family to help raise funds and awareness!
