A new Ipsis Mori Scotland poll for the Gordons Fightback campaign was announced yesterday at one of our research labs in Edinburgh. The poll shows there is strong support for doubling MND research spending in the UK and overwhelming support for fast tracking benefits for terminally-ill patients. It also shows the percentage of the general public who are aware of MND as a disease in comparison to other diseases which is still quite low despite the efforts of last year’s phenomenal Ice Bucket Challenge campaign. This was an extremely informative poll which shows there is keen support for improving care and treatments for MND patients in the UK.
