Neurology is the branch of medicine that deals with disorders of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles. Such conditions include epilepsy, migraine, dementia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, muscular dystrophy and stroke.
The service is predominantly provided at the Queen's Medical Centre (outpatients, day cases and inpatients). However, stroke services, neurooncology and some general neurology clinics are based at Nottingham City Hospital.
Transient ischaemic attack clinics are based at the Nottingham Treatment Centre. The neurology consultants also run general clinics in hospitals in Boston, Burton, Derby, Loughborough, Mansfield and Newark.
The Neurology Service has a strong research portfolio with international reputation in multiple sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson's disease (PD), supported by national and international research funding bodies, the pharmaceutical industry and local donations.
