Rare Diseases Centre
We see people and families with rare diseases, including:
- Bardet-Biedl syndrome
- epidermolysis bullosa
- xeroderma pigmentosum
- Cockayne syndrome
- Klinefelter syndrome
- rare bone disorders
We bring together specialists from different departments to provide a full service.
Our centre has been specially designed with your needs in mind, including:
- UV-free areas if you have xeroderma pigmentosum
- large consulting rooms so that we can see whole families affected by the same genetic condition at once
- video conference equipment so that our specialists can work closely with your local health services and international experts
- a large, welcoming reception area, kitchen facilities and a relaxing garden for you and your family
Rare Disease UK is the national campaign for people with rare diseases and all who support them.
Research and clinical trials
Research is vital to improving the care that you receive when you're unwell. You can help improve healthcare by taking part in research studies at our Trust. During your appointment, ask your healthcare professional about research. They'll be happy to tell you about research studies you could be eligible to join.
