Information for Commissioners

The Michael Palin Centre (MPC) was established in 1993 as a national specialist Centre offering advice in individual cases, specialist therapy for complex clients and continuing professional training. There is an active research programme to investigate, support and develop the services offered at the Centre.

The Michael Palin Centre is run by Whittington Health (previously Islington PCT) with the support of a charity, Action for Stammering Children (ASC).
