For Patients

Salford Royal provides the adult care of a joint service with Central Manchester NHS Foundation Trust for Lysosomal storage disorders (LSD). The national service is funded by the national specialist group for patients living in England. 

Patients from Wales, Scotland and Ireland are also managed by the centre, and separate commissioning procedures are in place to accommodate this arrangement.   Read more...
