Swansea Morriston Hospital has a neuromuscular service for children and adults. Its service includes an adult clinic, respiratory clinics, general paediatric clinic and child peripheral nerve and peripheral neuropathy clinics. Outreach clinics in two local hospitals are held four times every year.

The Neurology Service provides out-patient and in-patient care to neurology patients from south west Wales. The service treats around 400 out-patients and 600 in- patients per year. In addition to routine procedures the department at Morriston hospital was the first in Wales to provide a video-telemetry service. Due to the highly specialised nature of the various procedures, the department serves an extensive area of South West Wales.

How to access the service

In order to access the service a person must be referred by either a Consultant or a GP.
