SWNODN Consultant Neurologists
The South West Neuromuscular Operational Delivery Network (SWNODN) employs two Paediatric Neurologists and two Adult Neurologists who have a specialist interest in neuromuscular conditions. They hold weekly paediatric and adult neuromuscular clinics in Plymouth and Bristol, as well as a number of regular clinics across the South West. For further information about these, please go to the Clinics section of this website.
Each consultant is supported in the neuromuscular clinics by a Neuromuscular Physiotherapist, a Neuromuscular Advisor and a Specialist Clinical Psychologist who are available to provide information and advice. Additional local specialist clinicians and allied healthcare professionals who specialise in other areas of medicine such as respiratory, cardiac and genetics, may also attend joint clinics (this is often called a multi-disciplinary clinic). This ensures patients receive the best treatment and medical care possible relevant to their specific condition.
Consultant Paediatric Neurologists
The SWNODN employs two Consultant Paediatric Neurologists, both based in the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children. The Paediatric Neurologists look after children with a neuromuscular condition from the point of diagnosis up until the age of 16, at which point they will help guide the child and their family through the process of transition into the adult neurology services.
The SWNODN employs two Consultant Neurologists who have a specialist interest in neuromuscular conditions. They provide neuromuscular clinics for adults with a neuromuscular condition across the South West and are based in Southmead Hospital Bristol and Derriford Hospital, Plymouth.
