The MRC Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases provides a multidisciplinary service for adult and paediatric patient with a neuromuscular condition.
Patients will undergo a comprehensive assessment which includes full clinical assessment by a consultant expert in rare neuromuscular disorders, specialist nurse consultation, physiotherapist assessment and social care advisor consultation. The service provides a whole of life service to patients with neuromuscular conditions.
