Our clinic is supported by the Motor Neuron Disease Association (MNDA) and the essence of our service is to provide a relaxed and calm environment to enable prolonged, careful and frank discussion.

We ensure frequent follow-up and aim to maintain a constant availability to discuss any issues around diagnosis and symptom management outside the clinic environment by access to  the team by telephone or e-mail.

  1. Multi-disciplinary MND-specific, speech and language, swallowing and dietary assessment clinics
  2. Multi-disciplinary MND-specific, physiotherapy and occupational therapy assessment clinics
  3. Advance care planning clinics for both patients and carers
