The TSA Nurse service is able to provide general information and advice on TSC. The information provided is not a substitute for professional health care. You should always seek your own medical guidance from your doctor or health care professional and not disregard professional advice or delay seeking assistance because of any information received from the TSA Nurse.
The TSA Nurse is only available to people living in Australia. However, there are TSC organisations in many countries around the world. We encourage you to find a TSC organisation in your country through TSC International. In New Zealand please contact Tuberous Sclerosis Complex New Zealand.
