For the past 25 years our Medical Genetics Service for Wales has provided information, genetic counselling and testing and clinical support for individuals with Huntington's disease and their relatives. We have now joined with colleagues from Neurology, Psychiatry and Neuropsychology to form a more broadly based service for South Wales families. We are also a service that is actively involved in research. A number of these research activities are in partnership with UK and European Huntington's disease networks.
Referrals to Clinic
Patients and relatives are referred by General Practitioners or Hospital Consultants to attend Professor Anne Rosser's HD clinic.Clinics
Clinics for patients at risk of Huntington’s disease are held at the Institute of Medical Genetics
, University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff.
The aim of the service is to provide information about the disease, discuss the choices available, and provide ongoing care and support to at risk patients and their families.
The clinic also provides presymptomatic genetic counselling and testing.
