Visiting the Clinic

All referrals come through your neurologist or GP; we are unable to take referrals from individuals.

Anne Rowling Clinic receptionThe MND Clinic is based at The Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic, which is located on the site of the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh at Little France.

On the first visit, you will meet one of the two neurologists, Professor Siddharthan Chandran or Dr Richard Davenport, as well as our nurse specialists Judith Newton and/or Gill Stott. They will discuss the diagnosis, help decide what your needs are, and arrange any further tests required. We have access to various supportive therapists, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy, as well as more specialised services such as ventilatory support. We very much encourage you to bring your partner and/or close family to the consultation, and recommend that you think in advance about any questions you might like to ask. A key purpose of the Clinic, in addition to care, is to enable clinical research.

Subsequent follow-up visits can be planned after the initial consultation.
