Neurology care 'lacking' in UK

7th June 2011

A report has warned that neurological services in the health service are badly managed and do not meet patients' requirements.

The UK has far fewer neurologists per head than many other countries - one per 125,000 in the UK compared to one per 40,000 in the US and Europe. Steve Ford, Chair of the Neurological Alliance, said: "Patients with neurological conditions need to see the right specialist at the right time in the right place, but evidence shows clearly that this isn't happening due to poorly organised services and not enough specialist care."
