Neurology

Care for conditions of the nervous system

We combine the expertise of the country's leading consultants with advanced technology to deliver the very best care

Overview

Neurology is a specialist branch of medicine, which focuses on the nervous system. This includes the diagnosis, management and non-surgical treatment for conditions that affect your brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. Neurological disorders can limit your body’s ability to function correctly, causing symptoms that range from headache or memory loss to a lack of sensation or control of a limb. Common neurological problems we treat include strokes, headaches, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and dementia. Your sense of smell, vision, hearing and balance can also be affected by a neurological condition. That's why we take a multidisciplinary approach to care. Our neurologists work closely with leading consultants across a range of specialties, including spinal surgery, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, oncology and ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgery — giving you personalised care, whatever your condition.

Expertise

Our neurology service is supported by more than 100 consultants and comprehensive diagnostic tests, including specialist neurophysiology and neuroimaging, to address the full spectrum of neurological conditions.
