Opening of new Rare Diseases Unit at Birmingham Women's and Children's Hospital - Waterfall House

By: Joanne Osmond

We're very proud to be home to the UK’s first rare diseases centre for children. The centre, located in Waterfall House - our £37.5million clinical building, is due to open in 2018. The rare disease centre has been generously funded by donations to the Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity’s Star Appeal, which raised £3.65million for the cause. We treat approximately 9,000 children and young people with more than 500 different rare diseases from across the UK and have 11 highly-specialised services. The centre means that we will be able to offer our rare disease children and young people highly coordinated multidisciplinary and multi-specialty rare disease clinics together with peer support and consistent access to research, information and treatment. We are proud to be redefining the best care from a 'one-size-fits-all' to a patient-centred approach in which we help children and families with rare diseases lead the best quality of life possible.
