Our services

  • Completing multidisciplinary reviews throughout your child’s life monitoring overall development and identify medical or therapy needs.
  • To provide information to patients, families and professionals and liaise with service providers assisting children in the community.
  • To assist with goal setting between clinics related to specific Spina Bifida needs and concerns.
  • To co-ordinate care and therefore reduce the overall number of individual visits to the hospital. Where possible we try to co-ordinate as many tests and consultations as possible in the one day. This may involve a period of waiting between morning appointments and afternoon clinic.
  • The team adopts a ‘shared care’ approach with your local services and will liaise with your team, it is encouraged that any concerns or issues are brought to the team before clinic where possible.
