Neurology

Neurology involves the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. Neurologists diagnose and treat impaired function of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles, as well as the blood vessels that supply them. 

The most common illnesses that we assess and manage are headaches, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, dementia and degenerative diseases, multiple sclerosis and traumatic brain injury.

We work closely with our colleagues in the Stroke service, Radiology and Neurophysiology and with the Community Neuro Team (therapy services) in the Sutton and Merton region.

We offer both outpatient clinics and an inpatient consultant service. 

Outpatient clinics

There are general neurology clinics at Epsom Hospital and at St Helier Hospital Monday to Thursday and a multiple sclerosis nurse specialist clinic on Thursdays at St Helier Hospital.
