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. The St Helier site has a specialist inpatient neuro-rehabilitation team, made up of highly specialist occupational therapy, physiotherapy and speech therapy. The team's role is to provide specialist assessment, rehabilitation and pathway planning for patients with neurological conditions. They work closely with the neurology consultants, ward teams and community neuro therapy teams in Sutton, Merton and other surrounding areas. The team also maintain close links with St George's hospital and other specialist neuro-rehabilitation centres.
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.
