Muscular dystrophy campaign

4th December 2007

A report has claimed that some patients with neuromuscular diseases may die more than a decade too soon because specialist services are too far away from where they live.

It found people with muscular dystrophy in north east England - close to a centre of excellence - live an average of 30 years after diagnosis while in the south west the average was just 18 years. The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign report found two-thirds of areas in England do not offer the right kind of care.
