Meet the healthcare pioneers putting the North East’s rare diseases expertise on the world stage

28 February 2018

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.
