Your day at the clinic:

  • Patients and their families will each see approximately 6-7 clinicians within the Rare Disease Centre at Waterfall House and will also have appointments in the ophthalmology department.
  • Clinics are held once a month on a Monday morning.
  • Be prepared - the day can feel busy and long so organise healthy snacks, drinks and something to keep your child occupied to help the day pass easier.
  • A sandwich lunch is provided at the clinic; all dietary needs are catered for with advance notice.
  • There are indoor and outdoor play areas available so children can relax away from the consultations if needed. There is also a sensory room available.
  • Please note Birmingham has a 'clean air zone', for more information go to www.bwc.nhs.uk/clean-air-zone
