Newcastle - The Tuberous Sclerosis Specialist Clinic

The Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle is from January 2018 offering a multi-specialty clinic for patients and their family members with Tuberous sclerosis Complex (TSC). This clinic will provide expertise in adult and paediatric nephrology, neurology and clinical genetics and will involve specialists in Respiratory, Dermatology, Cardiology and Paediatric Neurology as required.

Great North Children’s Hospital has recently been modernised with the introduction of a range of disease-specific clinics. As part of this service development, a 3 monthly TSC Specialist Clinic has been established.

This clinic is staffed by a Consultant Nephrologist with an interest in renal genetics (Professor John Sayer, Professor of Renal Medicine), a Consultant Paediatric Nephrologist (Dr Yincent Tse), a neurologist (Dr Rhys Thomas) and a Clinical Geneticist (Dr Alex Henderson).

This will enable TSC patients and other family members who wish to attend to be seen together for a detailed discussion about the diagnosis, implications, monitoring and treatment of their disease.

This clinic is held in the Paediatric outpatient department, Great North Children’s Hospital, RVI, Newcastle NE1 4LP.
