HRH The Duchess of Gloucester visits hospital
11 March 2010
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester met patients and staff in the Adult Multi-Disciplinary Clinic for Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus patients during a visit to the hospital today.
The Duchess is patron of the charity, the Association for Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus (ASBAH).
The clinic at Chelsea and Westminster is a centre of excellence which cares for approximately 500 patients a year from a wide geographical area.
It provides a ‘one-stop’ health check-up for patients living with spina bifida and hydrocephalus, drawing on the expertise of a range of multi-disciplinary staff.
ASBAH has supported the clinic since it was first established. Health Adviser, Gill Yaz attends all clinics to give advice to patients and their carers on social and support issues, and to make contact with their local key worker to provide ongoing support.
