NHS Wolfram Syndrome Multi-Disciplinary Clinics

Waterfall House – Children’s WS Clinic

Heritage Building – Adult’s WS Clinic

Multidisciplinary clinics have been set up at Waterfall House at Birmingham Children’s Hospital to provide reviews for children and young people and at The Rare Disease Centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham for adults with a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of Wolfram Syndrome .

During the clinic they can access specialist advice for individual medical complications; educational support, emotional support and genetic testing.

At the children’s clinic there is the Wolfram Syndrome Family Coordinator, whose role is to help families attend the clinic and support them over the 2 days. Support is currently limited for the adult clinics.

Clinic feedback

Below is some of the feedback we’ve had: –

  • “It has all been excellent. A long day but well worth it for reassurance, information and opportunities to meet other families. Thank you very much!”
  • “Good to meet the other families… would be nice to keep in touch.”
  • “Comforting to know that there is a team of experts available if you have any questions or if anything comes up.”
