We recommend annual clinical review for all individuals with NF1, NF2 and schwannomatosis

Individuals with uncomplicated NF1 or schwannomatosis should be referred to their local primary care physician for annual review, an NF1 clinical review checklist is available to guide reviews. Please see the ​annual review checklist below for more information about appropriate indications for referral. 

Individuals with complicated NF1 and NF2 can be referred to either the RNS​H NF clinic or their local NF specialist (e.g., general physician, paediatrician, neurologist, etc.) for regular review.
