One of nine specialised cleft units in England...


We have an active program of research and present regularly both at national and international meetings.

From time to time we may invite families and young people to take part in a research project to help us develop our understanding and pioneer the best possible care.

We will always give you plenty of information to help you decide if you would like to take part. We do understand that some people may not wish to be involved, and this would not affect your care in any way.

Our aim is also to foster links with other innovative cleft services in the UK and Europe, in order that we can be at the forefront of cleft care.
