More information 

This is a national clinical and research network for patients with SMA.

Primary objective

To provide a national agreement on

  • clinical assessment
  • physiotherapy assessment
  • and treatment for SMA patients

We propose designing, piloting and expanding an electronic database. The database will streamline the collection of data for SMA patients.

The UK SMA database, a unique infrastructure, will be developed at GOSH and Newcastle. It will soon be built up and accessible to specialist centres treating SMA patients across the UK.
