There are two A-T specialist clinical centres in the UK, one for children at Nottingham City Hospital (16 and under) and one for adults at Papworth Hospital, Cambridge (Over 16). These centres are now fully funded by the NHS and have built up considerable experience and expertise in A-T together with developing better management of the condition. Both centres offer multidisciplinary medical assessments over two days. For details and information on referrals please click on the relevant link below:
The A-T Society was instrumental in setting up and developing both centres and continues to work in collaboration with the NHS to constantly review and progress the quality of care for patients. We also arrange appointments at the centres and assist with arrangements and costs for transport and accommodation.
We would strongly encourage everyone with A-T to attend one of these centres as soon as they feel able after diagnosis and then regularly after that. The advice given at each centre is invaluable for you/ your child’s health, both in the short and longer terms.
In the video below Professor Malcolm Taylor explains why attending the clinic is so important.
If you live outside of the UK it may still be possible for you to attend one of these centres, either through the European system or as a private patient.
