Neurological Alliance issues wake-up call to Government and NHS over neurology services

Welcome

Thanks for visiting my blog. I am Chair of INVOLVE - the UK's national advisory group on public involvement - and NIHR National Director for Public Participation and Engagement in Research. I was CEO at the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) from 2006 until 2011. My full profile can be found on the 'Biography' page. The views on here are all personal ones unless otherwise stated. I hope you enjoy some of the things I write and/or find a useful link or two along the way.

The Neurological Alliance which represents over 70 charities in the field has wheeled out its big guns today to highlight the lack of preparedness across the NHS to meet the needs of increasing numbers of people with neurological conditions.

It really is wheeling out its big guns such as Steve Ford at Parkinson’s UK and Simon Gillespie at the MS Society.  I think the former is due to appear on Radio Five at 5pm according to Twitter.  The call by the Alliance follows a damning report on current services by the National Audit Office before Christmas and comes ahead of the Alliance appearing before the Public Accounts Committee later this week I think.

It is calling for a Government tsar to champion improvement and a plan for future delivery of services.  Read the Guardian amongst others.

And because I can’t let my post of yesterday go, take note this is what a united and impactful campaign looks like.
