Information and contact details for NHS TSC clinics across the UK

There are NHS TSC clinics across the UK, with specialist clinicians and researchers in each who understand the impact that living with TSC can have on individuals and families.

NHS TSC clinics are run by TSC specialist doctors and nurses who volunteer to work at their NHS TSC clinics in addition to their day jobs. Each NHS TSC clinic depends on funding from specialised services. Each clinic will have a limited number of appointments each month. What you experience at an NHS TSC clinic will vary depending on which clinic you are referred to.

Here, we have provided a run-down of the different clinics, including contact details, to help facilitate referrals.
