Clinical service

We see patients from 0-16 years with suspected or diagnosed metabolic disease including those identified from newborn screening.

Clinics we offer:

  • Weekly clinics in Bristol which include multidisciplinary consultant led clinics, dietetic clinics and nurse led clinics.
  • Outreach multidisciplinary clinics in Truro, Plymouth, Exeter, Taunton and Bath.
  • A transition clinic and service led by Sue Cross the lead paediatric nurse specialist to support the transfer of older children to adult services.

Mondays to Fridays 9am to 5pm, the on call consultant manages acute admissions to the paediatric wards, NICU or PICU and transfers from other hospitals. They carry the on call mobile phone for clinical advice and management. Specialist nurses and specialist dietitians also provide telephone support for patients and telephone advice to other professionals.

Out of hours on weekdays and weekends a metabolic consultant is on call for provision of specialist advice
