Neurology Network Managers Meeting 2021
Free to attend for NHS and related professionals, these half-day national network meetings will cover all the topical issues needed to deliver neurology services.
Location: Fully virtual streaming live from Halifax Hall, Sheffield University Campus
Join us for the Neurology Network Managers Meeting which will enable senior managers and directors in neurology services to update their knowledge on current neurology service delivery.
- Meet with strategic and operational colleagues in neurology
- Hear senior representatives from NHSE/I speak about current issues
- Network in a forum exclusively for discussion, learning and feedback in neurology
As a group of senior neurology managers the challenges and strains within the services can be daunting but engagement in the NNMM is beneficial to ensure you understand current key policy and practice issues, understand what will be required of your services and help us ensure that a strong voice for neurology is heard nationally.
We hope you can join us at this exciting meeting not only to help the day be a success but also to develop how future meetings can be organised.
- To ensure managers are aware of new interventions and treatments for neurology and understand what service planning should be taking place now
- Learning from others - clinical pathway development how do secondary services and community services integrate pathways for MS and epilepsy how can we apply this to other conditions?
- Understand the business planning process - how can I get it right?
- Communicating the patient experience in neurology – details from Neuro Life

Whilst undertaking the Neurology Network Vanguard programme, supported by NHS England, the Vanguard Programme Director, Julie Riley noted that there are many areas of good practice and learning throughout the neurology community, but as a group of senior decision makers at a high leadership level, there was no forum for sharing this good practice or learning. This is unlike other senior leaders in healthcare who meet and share learning through such gatherings, for example the Executive Director of Strategy and Operations supported by NHS Providers, Finance Directors national meetings and Proud 2B Ops. It was from this that the idea of a National Neurology Managers Network was formed.
The object of the Network is to not only share good practice, but to get neurology senior managers and clinicians together, to influence practice, to develop service plans and business cases together, and to take neurology services forward. The Network will also act as support outside of the meetings. It is not to be seen as a clinical meeting alone, but one of a joint venture between managers and clinicians, to develop skills to influence at Board level and to make sure that Neurology has a voice at a high level in organisations that are consumed with many other complex issues and problems.
In 2021 the impact of COVID will continue to be felt, the GIRFT neurology report will be launched and numerous new treatments come to market.
Neurology managers can use this forum to keep up to date on issues of relevance as well as network with other mangers.
This meeting is supported by sponsorship from Allergan, Biogen Idec Ltd and Novartis Pharmaceuticals UK Ltd. The sponsors have had no involvement in the organisation or educational content of the meeting.
