Liam Rice

Multiple sclerosis nurse specialist
Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Liam is a multiple sclerosis (MS) nurse specialist in Sheffield for the past 15 years, with a background in urology and critical care. He works in a team of forward-thinking specialist nurses who all have unique and individual skills, making his service progressive and intuitive to the ever-changing nature of MS. He and his team developed several innovative and ground-breaking services which have improved the standards of care they offer. He had set up and led the MS/Urology service, which delivers robust pathway driven bladder and bowel care, what makes his service so special is the communication the team has between nurse and consultant urologist who understands the specialist care needed in managing MS patients with neurogenic bladder / bowel issues. This joint up thinking approach has allowed us to develop successful pathways to manage the complex patient group.
