Improving care, advancing science, building hope
Do you live in Scotland, and have a neurological condition?
Or do you care for someone who does?
The Anne Rowling Clinic is a state-of-the-art University of Edinburgh clinical research facility. We work with NHS doctors across Scotland who see people who have brain conditions like multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, Parkinson’s disease and dementias. Effective treatments for these conditions are very limited.
By studying patients we can improve care and potentially develop new treatments.
It only takes 10 minutes to help
Anyone in Scotland can sign up. You can help us in one simple step: by joining the Rowling CARE (Clinical, Audit, Research & Evaluation) Register. It’s a free, quick and easy sign-up form that you can complete here online, by post, or in person at the Clinic in Edinburgh.
Data saves lives
By comparing relevant healthcare data from many people, our University and NHS researchers can study the variation in these brain conditions in great detail. We can determine patterns and clues as to how to improve care and ultimately develop personalised medicines and clinical trials.
You're in safe hands
We take data privacy very seriously. Because all the healthcare information we use for research is anonymised, you can’t be identified. Your name, address and date of birth will never be disclosed.
All our studies are approved and supported by national ethics boards, the University of Edinburgh and the NHS, and are compliant with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) 2018.
Be first to hear about new trials
You can tell us if you would like to be contacted when we are running a research study or clinical trial that you might be eligible for. Or perhaps you would like to join a group that will discuss and help shape our future research.
How you get involved is up to you, and none of your choices would ever affect your medical care.Go to the sign-up page.
