The demand for appointments in Neurology Outpatients is very high. It is essential that waiting times are kept to a minimum to ensure patients with serious neurological illnesses receive timely assessment and management. Patients with some conditions may be better served by other specialities or be adequately managed in primary care. For these reasons please refer according to the guidelines below.
Please be reminded that from August 2018 only referrals made through E- Referral Service will be accepted.
