Specialist Clinics  

A variety of specialist clinics are offered by visiting therapists here at the Centre.  Appointments for these clinics can be made via reception, excluding the Spasticity Clinic which is a referral only clinic (please speak to one of our physiotherapists about the referral process for this clinic).

Spasticity Clinic:  Run by visiting consultant Mr Angus Graham, from Southmead Hospital. To find out about referrals to this clinic, which takes place every six weeks, please speak to one of our physiotherapists.

Benefits Advice Service & Advocacy: Offered by Mike Harris from the West of England Centre for Inclusive Living (WECIL).  If you are unsure of your legal position, want to know more about the welfare reforms and how they affect you or need free, independent and confidential advice then this advice clinic is for you. The clinic occurs twice a month, on the second Tuesday (09:00-17:00) and the third Friday (09:00-16:30) of the month.

MS Nurse:  MS specialist nurses provide clinical advice and support to people with multiple sclerosis. They often act to co-ordinate services for people with MS, referring someone on to a doctor, or a therapist, or other appropriate services. Dawn Talbot, specialist MS Nurse, visits the Centre on the second Wednesday of every month.

Bladder and Bowel Health Clinic: MS often effects continence, yet this can be one of the symptoms rarely talked about for fear of embarrassment.  Discreet, one-to-one appointments are available with Carol Copestake, who is a specialist MS Nurse, to discuss issues with bladder and bowel health.

Chiropody: It is important to take care of your feet and this is often an area that people with MS, and those helping and caring for them, can neglect.  Our visiting chiropodist deals with a variety of ailments and comes to the Centre

Beautician: It is important to take time for yourself.  Ashley Marks, our visiting beautician, comes to the Centre once a month.  She offers a variety of treatments at a discounted price for Centre Members, for both men and women.
