How to find us..



Leeds General Infirmary is in Leeds city centre. There is a very frequent bus from both the Bus Station and Railway Stations, as well as from various points throughout the city centre.  This stops just outside the Jubilee Wing, which is where the clinic is held. The following map shows Leeds City Centre with LGI towards the top left hand
corner.

There is also a car park at the LGI, though this is a Pay and Display car park with limited spaces.

The joint research and management clinics are held on the first and second Friday of each month in The Jubilee Wing at Leeds General Infirmary. Usually participants are asked to arrive at 1:30pm and will spend the whole afternoon in clinic. They will see several health professionals which may include a Geneticist, Neurologist, Psychiatrist, Genetic Counsellors and Research staff.  A representative from The Huntington's Disease Association is part of the team and attends most clinics, providing a link to community based services. 
If possible it is helpful if patients can bring spectacles if they wear them and a list of medication taken over the last year, with details regarding dose taken, frequency and start/stop date if at all possible. Patients are asked to come to this clinic once every year.
