European Reference Networks (ERNs) offer the potential to give patients and doctors across the EU access to the best expertise and timely exchange of life-saving knowledge, without having to travel to another country.
We are delighted that here at our centre we coordinate the ERN for neuromuscular function know as EURO-NMD.
There are a total of 24 networks across Europe of which 6 are coordinated in the UK and 3 of those are from here in Newcastle.
Our NHS foundation trust, Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals, who work in collaboration with Newcastle University on the network, have released a news article highlighting the 3 networks in Newcastle and some of the amazing work they are undertaking.
