Our Services

The Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases draws together the expertise of a large team of specialist clinical neurologists, neurophysiologists, neuropathologists, neurophysiotherapists and specialist nurses in the clinical management of neuromuscular muscle wasting diseases such as motor neuron disease, myasthenia gravis, muscular dystrophy and peripheral neuropathy. In addition there is an active clinical and preclinical research programme into these disorders. As such, it is one of the leading centres for research into neuromuscular diseases in the UK.

We see around 3,500 patients each year in the muscle, peripheral nerve, motor neurone disease and myasthenia clinics. The muscle and peripheral nerve services have both experienced a rapid expansion in recent years, driven by demand for treatment. We are also actively involved in research into the genetic and acquired neuromuscular diseases, are involved in clinical trials of new treatments and offer specialist clinics for genetic neuromuscular diseases.
