If you are a patient who has had a confirmed diagnosis of a neuromuscular condition covered by the SWNODN, you may already be receiving care from a Consultant Paediatrician or Neurologist in your local hospital.
Sometimes your local hospital doctor may seek specialist advice from, or refer you to, a SWNODN Consultant Neurologist.
If you would like further information and advice about attending one of the SWNODN’s neuromuscular clinics, or would like to get in touch with the Neuromuscular Advisor for your area, please contact the Network office.
We are currently developing a patient pathway to guide healthcare professionals on when it is appropriate to refer to the neuromuscular clinics. However, if an individual has a neuromuscular condition and does not currently need input from a specialist consultant, they can still access a Neuromuscular Advisor by calling the Network Office. Healthcare professionals can also refer individuals to the Neuromuscular Advisor or Specialist Physiotherapist by completing SWNODN - Advisor Referral Form.pdf
