The Neurological Alliance has released a new report: The Invisible Patients: Revealing the state of neurology services

The Neurological Alliance has announced the launch of its new report, The Invisible Patients: Revealing the state of neurology services.

Commenting on the report, the Neurological Alliance’s Chief Executive, Arlene Wilkie, said:

 

“For too long, people living with neurological conditions have been the ‘invisible patients’, often marginalised by a system that doesn’t understand their conditions or their needs. This has to change. I am delighted that this report provides a vital first step in exposing the true state of neurological services today. It is time for the health and care system to open its eyes to the needs of the millions of people who live with these complex and challenging conditions. They must be invisible no longer.” 

 

The Association of British Neurologists supports the Neurological Alliance’s call to improve the commissioning of care for people with neurological conditions, and we welcome The Invisible Patients as an important tool in driving neurological service improvements within the health and social care landscape.
