This unit is led by Professor Leone Ridsdale, who is trained both as a neurologist and as a GP. Some common neurological symptoms & conditions have been relatively neglected in primary care. They include chronic fatigue, headache & epilepsy, and have physical, social & psychological impact. Without evidence from primary care on diagnosis, prognosis & management, it is difficult for the NHS to prevent disability and lack of participation for these people. New service models, which reduce barriers to care, & increase skills of GPs, nurses & therapists have been developed & tested providing evidence for the NHS.
