Abstract:
The Service, Clinical and Laboratory (Diagnostic and Screening) for Inherited Metabolic Disorders has been provided by Temple Street Children's Hospital, for 30 years. The nature of the conditions dictates that specially trained personnel are needed at laboratory and clinical level to deal with this discipline. The Laboratory equipment and expertise required are becoming more complex. The numbers of individuals identified are increasing annually, and once a condition is identified the patient requires lifetime treatment. New conditions are being identified continuously, and more conditions previously undiagnosed are now being found to have a metabolic cause. There is no metabolic service at any adult hospital to which patients could be referred as they get older. (International experience suggests that for a population of three or four million, only one centre can be justified).
