Neurologists are specialists in disorders of the nervous system. Some neurologists also have expertise in particular areas, such as the immune system.

Your neurologist will have trained at medical school and for several years following this in both general medicine, based in hospitals, and at recognised neurology training units. They work in hospitals and as part of a team of therapists including specialist nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.

Diagnosing neurological disease can be challenging and is based on an examination and tests.

Most neurological conditions can be managed but often can’t be cured, so patients can see their neurologist over many years.
