Behcets Syndrome Centres of Excellence The Behcets Syndrome Centres of Excellence were set up in three NHS Trusts in Birmingham, Liverpool and London in April 2012 to provide care for patients with Behcet’s Syndrome.

The aim of the Centres of Excellence is to ensure that patients with Behcets syndrome can access timely diagnosis and receive optimal treatment across the country. They provide a “one stop” service, aiming to provide the best care from diagnosis for this rare, chronic disease.

The Behcets Centres of Excellence offer care in the form of multi-disciplinary clinics and facilitate access to high cost drugs.
