1 in 6 people in the UK are living with a neurological condition. They account for 1 in 10 GP consultations.
Primary care input is essential for:
identifying possible neurological problems,
effective symptom management,
holistic support and management of comorbidities,
lifestyle advice, preventative care and general health and wellbeing,
care across the wider family.
We want to support and encourage those in primary care practice to engage with neurology and so feel more confident in supporting their patients living with a neurological condition.
