Clinic information

The multi-disciplinary clinic was established in order to improve the coordination of care for people affected by HD.  We felt a unified multi-disciplinary clinic was the best way of meeting the complex needs of HD patients. 
Patients are encouraged to bring their own food or drinks if required.  There is no general parking, although there is limited disabled parking, and a drop off facility. There is an NCP car park at the junction of Snowsfield and Kipling Street, about a 2 minute walk from the hospital. However, this car park is often full. Charges are displayed at the entrance.   Details of how to discuss assessment for hospital transportation are included in the appointment letters. 
Patients of this clinic have usually already got symptoms of the disease or had a positive predictive test.  Predictive testing can be arranged at a general genetic counselling clinic held in the same department.

Appointments
Our clinics are held on the second Thursday of every month and take place between 12pm and 4pm.  With respect to research, we are active in European HD, but do not have any other major trials, apart from occasionally recruiting to some of the studies based at London's NHNN.

Referrals for this clinic are usually from GPs or consultants.  Appointments can take 2-3 hours depending on which specialists are seen on the day.  Medical examinations and psychological assessments are often carried out which include tests of physical ability and memory/thinking.  Most patients are seen once a year.  Please bring details of current medication being taken and contact details of any other doctors involved in your care.
