Welcome to the SMA Route Maps
Following diagnosis many families spend a significant amount of time and energy negotiating a complex maze of services. We hope these route maps will save some of that precious time and help to reduce the stress of finding your way. Developed by the support services team at SMA Support UK, they are based on the issues, concerns and personal experiences of parents and individuals with SMA, and the contributions of healthcare professionals with experience and expertise of this condition. They signpost to current services and sources of reliable, up-to-date information to help you make informed choices about your treatment options, play an active role in your care, and plan for the future.
You can also find information sheets about the Types and other aspects of Spinal Muscular Atrophy and more about SMA Support UK's services at: http://www.smasupportuk.org.uk/information-support

In 2015, 1,637 people used these route maps which are collated and produced by SMA Support UK.
Work started in 2010 as part of the 'Route Maps for Rare Conditions' project facilitated by Genetic Alliance UK, funded by the then Department of Health in England.
Subsequently SMA Support UK has continued to develop other route maps and is still working on what is a major undertaking. Funding for this project comes from charitable donations. If you can help to secure the future of this work, please donate today:
