Successful mytube website launch
People living with MND, Carers, Health Professionals and Branch representatives all gathered at SITraN in March for the launch of the mytube website. This new website, with videos about every aspect of tube feeding relating to MND was developed here in Sheffield by people attending the care centre and is an excellent resource. The team involved in the creation of the site explained how and why they got involved and discussed how to share this important information. The successful publicity began with the local Calendar News featuring a piece during their evening broadcast. http://mytube.mymnd.org.uk/
