Transition Clinics

The SWNODN consultants do not currently provide a designated neuromuscular transition clinic in Somerset.  However, we do have close links with the local Paediatricians in Somerset who may attend Dr Merrison’s Adult Neuromuscular Clinic in Taunton on the afternoon of the second Monday of the month.  This can be discussed with your Paediatrician and Dr Merrison prior to attending the adult clinic. The aim of the joint appointment is to help with the smooth transfer of children and their families from paediatric to adult neurology services.
