Call to improve neurological care in NHS

Have your say

tHE Government has been urged to improve care for people with conditions such as Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis.

It follows figures showing the rate of emergency hospital admissions for those with neurological conditions has risen by almost a third, despite a huge financial investment in services.

A National Audit Office (NAO) study found key measures of care have “worsened”, and the Department of Health is unable to say whether extra spending has been effective.

Some two million people are estimated to have a neurological condition in the UK, excluding migraine.
