For Medical Professionals

This page shares information that may prove helpful to you in caring for your WS patient, giving you more of an insight into the condition.

If you have diagnosed or are diagnosing a new patient with WS you will find the addresses for sending the child/family/adult to the relevant Wolfram Syndrome MDT service in Birmingham. There are MDT clinics held at Birmingham Women’s & Children’s Hospital at least 3 times a year, & also at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham at least 6 times a year. An affected person can not be seen there without a referral from a GP or diagnosing doctor. Some of the information here can also be shared with the WS affected person/family.
