Working for the nerve tumours community
Nerve Tumours UK provides support and information, as well as campaigns and raises awareness on behalf of over 26,500 people in the UK who have Neurofibromatosis (NF1 and NF2) and Schwannomatosis. We’re here to improve lives for people with nerve tumours, by making sure those affected have access to the help they require.
Additional information concerning Coronavirus (COVID-19) for people diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis
We understand that this is a very stressful time for many people, and it still may take longer for you to contact your local NF service. This is is because many of our doctors and nurses around the UK had been redeployed to help with Covid 19 medical care and vaccinations. Please do not worry, we are here to help.
Our Helpline is open on Monday & Wednesday from 9 am to 5 pm on 07939 046030.
On the other days of the week, the head office team can be contacted from 9 am to 5 pm on 0208 439 1234.
Outside of these hours, and if you think it is an emergency, please contact your GP, or go to your nearest A&E Department.
