Neurology

What we do

Neurology is the branch of medicine that deals with disorders of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles. Examples of neurological conditions include headaches, loss of memory or movement, numbness dementia.

Across both sites the trust provides outpatient and inpatient services, including regular general neurological and specialist neurological clinics – for disorders such as epilepsy.

At Chelsea and Westminster there are eight outpatient clinics per week (seven at the hospital and one at the South Westminster Centre). Day cases are seen in the medical day unit for assessment, complex investigations, lumbar puncture and intravenous treatment.

At West Middlesex our specialty doctor and consultants run three weekly clinics. We also have a Botulinum Toxin (specialist medicine) Clinic on the third Thursday of each month.

We have a close working relationship with the neurophysiology department, the radiology department, the acute stroke unit and The Royal Brompton Hospital. We provide training to specialist registrars in neurology, medical senior house officers and pre-registration house officers, as well as medical students from Imperial College.
