We provide a comprehensive tertiary neurology service for patients from the newborn period up until 16 years (for new referrals), both locally, within SW London, Surrey and West Sussex (4 million population base/ 11 DGHs plus Royal Marsden in Sutton).
This includes diagnosis, assessment and initial management of a variety of primarily acute conditions eg stroke, complex epilepsy, immune mediated neurological conditions, neuromuscular disorders, neurometabolic disorders. We support our paediatric colleagues with the neurological management of a variety of other medical conditions eg Paediatric brain tumours, haematological disorders, meningitis and encephalitis, and medically unexplained symptoms.
What we offer
- 24 hour telephone advice 7 days a week throughout the year.
- Weekly outpatient clinics at St George’s – initial assessment following which appropriate investigation and treatment can be devised. Regular follow up of some of the most complex or rare conditions.
- Regular Joint Neurology Clinics together with the referring Paediatricians, patient and family, at the local DGH in order to support the local team delivering appropriate neurological care.
