This unit deals with disorders of the nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord. It’s run by doctors who specialize in this area (neurologists) and their staff.

There are also pediatric neurologists who treat children. Neurologists may also be involved in clinical research and clinical trials.

Specialist nurses (epilepsy, multiple sclerosis) liaise with patients, consultants, and GPs to help with any problems that may occur between outpatient appointments.
