Referral process

Your GP will refer you by letter. The consultant will prioritise you before adding your name to the waiting list. We make appointments according priority or in date order.

 

During clinic

You will be either seen by a doctor, who specialises in Neurology or a Clinical Nurse Specialist.

There may be a junior doctor or medical student present. He/she would only be observing, and we will see you without them present if you prefer.

A clinic nurse is always on hand to act as your chaperone and answer any of your queries.

We will ask some questions about your general health. Please give details of any existing medical conditions and of your current complaint.
