Team TSA are thrilled to be able to provide a limited number of one-to-one sessions with clinicians during this year’s Big Day 2018 on Saturday 10 November.  

We received excellent feedback from attendees last year – it was a great opportunity for families to ask behavioural and medical questions relating to TSC and receive advice and guidance if needed.  
Our one-to-one sessions will run from 1.30-3.15 on the day, with each individual session lasting 15 minutes.
To book your 15-minute session, or if you require any more information, please email Bethan at
