About Us

The BRAMS clinical centre (the first of it’s kind in the UK) was officially opened on the Frenchay site in Dec 2008 and is now fully operational. The refurbishment and equipping of the previous glial cell laboratories was funded entirely by donations and grants awarded to the charity BRAMS. The majority of the funding raised was via grants awarded from pharmaceutical companies. In addition generous contributions have been received from the MSRTE (MS Research, Training and Education), local branches of the MS society, local grant giving trusts as well as from individuals with MS and their families.

The creation of this unit was envisaged to serve two main purposes.

1. Improve MS patient care
2. Facilitate clinical research

The unit already runs many MS specialist clinic services including

◦15 MS nurse lead clinics per week, including disease modifying treatment (DMT) clinics and bladder assessment clinics (including post-micturition bladder ultra-sound scans) .
◦MS Clinical Associate (Dr Janice Burrows) runs four clinics per week including DMT assessment clinics, relapse clinic and an EDSS research clinic.
◦MS specialist consultant clinics
◦Prof Scolding weekly neuro-inflammatory clinic
◦Dr Cottrell twice weekly MS clinics, including relapse clinic
◦Twice weekly registrar MS clinics supervised by Prof Scolding and Dr Cottrell
◦Weekly clinical trial research clinic run by Dr Cottrell and Dr Bennetto
◦Dr Wilkins monthly MS clinic.
◦Dr Graham (consultant in neuro-rehabiliatation) monthly clinic including BOTOX facility for MS patients with severe spasticity
◦Dr Drake (consultant urologist) monthly MS urology service.
