We are a team of dedicated healthcare professionals who look after adults with inherited disorders of metabolism.
Our outpatient clinics include:
We accept referrals from other healthcare professionals and regularly welcome patients moving from the paediatric metabolic clinics to our service; a process known as transition.
Our outpatient clinic service is primarily based in the outpatient departments at both University Hospital of Wales and University Hospital Llandough, Cardiff. Outpatient clinic appointments may also be offered to you at Wrexham Maelor Hospital or Denbigh Community Hospital.
Alternatively you may also be offered a telephone appointment or an online appointment via a video call. Video calling is as convenient as a phone call with the added value of face to face communication.
