About

Welcome to the National Neurology Network's website for service managers and commissioners.

The NNMM network has been developed to support service managers promote the commissioning of high quality, outcomes focused, value for money neurology services that align to Integrated Care System models and Primary Care Networks. It's an opportunity to hear first hand from national experts and

  • 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

Many Neurology Divisional Service Managers and commissioners do not have a clinical background and may have a relatively low appreciation of the complexities and interconnectedness of elements of neurology services and of ‘what works’. This impairs their ability to act as strong advocates for people living with long term neurological conditions.

Since Neurology was de-prioritised in 2016 with the departure of the National Clinical Director and the removal from Regional Clinical Networks, local commissioners have lost sight of the importance of Neurological services and rarely include Neurology service improvement in their commissioning priorities. There is now a critical need for local leaders to communicate the opportunities to improve Neurological services to address this unmet need in what is a high spend area for the NHS, and Divisional Business Managers are well placed to take on that role.

From this network we will be supporting service managers to promote the commissioning of high quality, outcomes focused, value for money neurology services that align to Integrated Care System models and Primary Care Networks.
